I don't believe I was supplied a torque spec for my Cane Creek carbon bars for the bar clamp on stem. Do I just follow torque spec given for the bar clamp screws on my Thomson stem, 4 Nm, weather I have aluminum or carbon bars?

Yes. Torque spec for the stem hardware is dependent on the materials of the stem, not the handlebars.
Carbon handle bars may require a certain style of clamping mechanism on you stem, IE: a seperate clamping plate, not a pinch bolt arrangement. Your Thomson stem will be fine. Follow Thomson's torque specs.
