Hi,
  I was wondering whether PPTP(VPN) from microsoft or other PPTP devices can support connection from client/server which uses dynamic internet IP (eg. dial-up, broadband with user name and password, etc.).

As long as the server you are connecting to has a static IP it doesn't matter what you are connecting from. That is the whole point of VPN.
If the server that you wish to connect to has a dynamic IP address then you just need to get a Dynamic DNS account, and then use the dns name instead of the IP address to connect.
