How are you creating the profile?  Are you doing it manually or with the profile generator?

Manually.  Can you set a path using a profile generator?

the profile generator allows you to set the default path.  See the Office Resource Kit as their are new features added with the introduction of Office XP.  Previous versions of Office can also use the profile generator, though.

If you want to push out the changes manually via a login script or custom default user profile, then try this
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\Microsoft Outlook Internet Settings\0a0d020000000000c000000000000046 and REG_SZ value 001e0324 seems to control the location and name of pst file.  You could export this registry file, modify the value and then import it as part of the login script.
