'virsh shutdown' is wired to cause qemu to send an ACPI shutdown signal
to the guest, which is more or less advisory.  If the guest doesn't
react to that, then there's nothing that shutdown can do; virsh prints
the ok message if qemu successfully sent the ACPI signal, even if the
guest ignores the signal.  Have you checked that your guests can react
to ACPI shutdown requests?
