Microsoft Outlook .pst files use a proprietary format. Thunderbird not only doesn't understand that format, it has no idea that .pst files even exist. Thats why there is no import command that lets you browse to the location of a .pst file.

You can try to import the Same PST in Outlook Express which you do not need to install. It comes by default with the Operating System, However if you have to anyways install it in Thunderbird itself, you can install a add on from the link

There is also a work around which mozilla suggests:
