I suspect that the text is not encoded as UTF-8 but Latin-1, so decoding your text from that most likely helps:
use Encode 'decode';
my $text = $clip->Get();
$text = decode('Latin1', $text);
open my $fh2,'>', $ofile or die "Error opening output file $ofile: $!\
binmode $fh2, ":encoding(UTF-8)";
print $fh2 $text, "\n";
If that doesn't work out, consider posting the actual hex bytes of $text and the (HTML-encoded, for this site) text you expect. Maybe it is UCS-2 or UTF-16...
