I do not understand. Do you want to say that der Frau is in dative case?

Exactly. Dative is also called the "Wem-Fall" (whom-case). Thus, you can check the case with an interrogative. Whom is the man similar to? The woman. Wem ist der Mann ähnlich? Der Frau.

Is this a good sentence as well? Der Mann ist ähnlich zu der Frau.

I'm afraid that this doesn't work.

How would one say the opposite meaning? "The man is different from the woman."

"Der Mann ist der Frau unähnlich.", "Der Mann ist der Frau nicht ähnlich.", "Der Mann ist nicht wie die Frau.", "Der Mann ist anders als die Frau." ...
