You do not provide enough information....
Set Mikrotik to AP Bridge Mode in your wireless configuration and under the WDS tab set it to Dynamic for your Bridge Interface...
After that you must enable the WDS client mode for the TP-Link as well...
Notice though, this might not work, wds will most probably work within the same brand...

In case it does not will have to set your TP-Link to some kind of client/station mode without WDS...
