I think he wants to run Steam itself.

Anyway, doing what vitamin said will succeed in creating a *Windows*
shortcut (.lnk), and you might even get a *XDG* shortcut (.desktop). But
if you want something that you can just double-click on, you're on your own.

You can do what doh123 said, and write a short AppleScript to launch
Steam (or a Steam game). You can even use the .desktop as a reference
(they're just text files, after all).

Someone right now is working on getting shortcut support for Mac into
Wine. Stay tuned...
