You'd have to recompile PHP on your windows machine and let it know that the DLL was there to be used.  I'm not sure how to go about that, but that's pretty what needs to happen.

LoadModule in httpd.conf if your DLL is in SAPI format

Here's a quote from http://www.php.net/manual/tw/faq.com.php#faq.com.q1

"If this is a simple DLL there is no way yet to run it from PHP. If the DLL contains a COM server you may be able to access it if it implements the IDispatch interface."
