Maybe it is easier when you use 'dir /w' to create the list.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to
build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe
trying to produce bigger and better idiots.
So far, the Universe is winning.

This should do what you want:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

Global $aList

_FileReadToArray("Dir.txt", $aList)

For $i = 1 To $aList[0]

    $sLine = $aList[$i]

    $iIndex = StringInStr($sLine, "Map van")
    If $iIndex <> 0 Then
        $sPath = StringMid($sLine, $iIndex + 8)
        If StringRight($sPath, 1) <> "\" Then $sPath &= "\"
        $i = _Level($i + 2)


Func _Level($iStart)

    For $j = $iStart To $aList[0]

        $sLine = $aList[$j]

        If StringLeft($sLine, 1) = " " Then ExitLoop

        $sName = StringMid($sLine, 37)

        If StringinStr($sLine, "<DIR>") <> 0 Then
            Switch $sName
                Case ".", ".."
                    ; Ignore
                Case Else
                    ;ConsoleWrite("Folder: " & $sPath & $sName & @CRLF)
                    DirCreate($sPath & $sName)
            ;ConsoleWrite("File:   " & $sPath & $sName & @CRLF)
            FileWrite($sPath & $sName, "")


    Return $j


I put your data into a file and then read it into an array - you may wish to do it another way. :(
