I just finished a campaign as a Circle of the Moon Druid involving werewolves. Being that werewolves are technically human shapeshifters, can a Druid wild shape into its wolf form?

No, you must choose a beast

Wildshape (PHB, 66) dictates:

Starting at 2nd level, you can use your action to magically assume the shape of a beast that you have seen before.

A Werewolf (MM, 211) states that they are a Humanoid and therefore not eligible for Wild Shape.

No, Werewolves are considered humanoid at all times. Wild shape only lets you assume the shape of a beast (Wolf or Dire wolf is acceptable)
