Generally, tomatoes partner well with sunflowers. I don't suspect that the sunflower has anything to do with the wilting.

I do suspect one of two things:

Underground pests, such as moles, voles, groundhogs, or any other burrowing rodent will destroy roots. This will cause wilting.

Infection. Clay soils can be bad for harboring infections, since it is not well draining.

Here are some articles that will give you suggestions on things that will need to be done to prevent issues in the future:
