If a tps and map were both bad or

Yes, the Map sensor would control the vacume pressure responsible for shifting.

Those trans don't shift on vacuum. They are fully electronically controlled and throttle position is transmitted by a cable from the throttle body to the trand. It probably needs the shift solenoid/ transducer/lock up solenoid kit replaced. Done quite a few myself.

As a side note, NEVER has Chrysler used vacuum to shift a trans
