So I have one of the cast outdoor surface mount boxes for an outdoor outlet where the wire will pass through the back to the inside. The inspector said it is missing a fitting. What type of fitting am I supposed to use for this?

I am going to "assume" the wiring method is romex. If so, use a "romex" connector. If the wiring method is something else, match the connector the wiring method.

Normally a NM clamp is used without the locknut. It gets threaded into the box. Apply caulk to seal the hole.
