The master should be the beam-end-node (pile-top node)
The slave should be the face of the cap solid
However, since your cap is made of a single cube, there is only one face at the bottom. Doing this, the beam-solid-coupling constraint will make the whole face rigid.
Instead, you should divide it in such a way that you have sub-faces that correspond to the pile-cross section. That is the part that is rigid with the pile
Thanks for the quick reply! I will revise my model and may need your help if I still run into problems.
