comment How do I view ovl files on Geogrid or Top50 then convert the data to shapefiles?
If it's a German format, and you have FME, then try contacting someone at con terra (conterra.de/index_en.asp) - they may already have a solution to read it.

comment Converting from ArcGIS TIN to LandXML?
Yes, the Data Interoperability Extension will read LandXML, but not write it. You'd need the upgrade to full FME to get writing ability (safe.com/solutions/for-applications/esri-arcgis/formats)
