I have restored my kvstore from backup using the steps from here: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.1/Admin/BackupKVstore

But now the SHC node's kvstore cannot start. Here are the messages seen in mongod.log:

looks like it's missing /splunk/var/lib/splunk/kvstore/mongo/local.* file which stores the cluster information.
You may want to check if you have /opt/splunkvar/lib/splunk/kvstore/mongo/local.0 file existing from your kvstore backup.

Also if by any chance you did run "splunk clean kvstore --cluster" command after restoring the kvstore backup, it would wipe out all the local.* files which contains the cluster information.
