Freeforms don't snap to the grid. I don't know if Word has guides that you can turn on or not, sorry. I guess an alternative would be to create your own grid using lines, then the freeform shape should snap to that as you draw.
I know, it's not ideal. Just trying to offer *something* that might help.
