    What caused her to make that decision?
    Why did she do that?

    What was the reason for her to decide to to that?
    What compelled her to do that?
    What "thing" ignited on her the idea to do that?
    What on Earth was responsible for her decision to do that?
    What exactly changed her behavior from not doing that to doing that?

    I guess "made" here means "transformed" her from an initial state where she hadn't decided to do that to a final state where she did decide to do that (whatever that was).
