Hard to say, I guess it depends on how this one page is set up. If this page is set up with contents in a text box, that might explain why it didn't resize with the page. Resize the text box and it's contents to match. Another easy solution might be to erase all content of the Contents page and retype them on the newly sized page.

Default TOC resizing

I had the exact problem you did (page numbers were way off to the right, etc.), and I was able to fix it by going into the Table of Contents menu. In 2007, click References > Table of Contents > Insert Table of Contents > Modify.

You then choose the level of heading you want to modify (in my case, it was Heading 2, so I chose TOC 2), and then click Modify. Click the Format drop-down menu, then click Tabs. I was resizing the TOC for an A5-sized document, and my tab stop ended up needing to be between 3.5 and 4.0. Play with it to figure out what you need by typing it in, choosing your Alignment and Leader, and clicking Set. You will then need to select the old tab stop and click Clear.

Hope this helps.

Default P.S.

I forgot to mention that I realize this is a really old post and it's likely you have already found the answer to your question, but I couldn't find the answer when I was googling it, so I figured this way, at least someone else might be able to find it more easily than I did.
