I have a question....if you have an iPhone and you have Windows 7, and you use Google to Sync, why are you importing pst files?

Ideally, you should use Outlook and iCloud PC Application to accomplish what you want to do.

When it comes to removing duplicates in outlook...

Select the folder for which you want to delete duplicate items.
Click the View tab in the Ribbon, click Change View in the Ribbon, and then click to change the folder view to a table type view. For example, click the List icon.
Right-click a column heading, and then click Field Chooser.
From the list at the top of the Field Chooser, click to select the All <item name> fields .
Drag the Modified field to the table heading.
Verify that the duplicate items have a unique date from the original set of items. If it is unique, click the Modified heading so that the items are sorted by this field.
Click the first item in the set that you want to delete, scroll to the last item in the set that you want to delete, and then click the last item while you hold down the SHIFT key.
Press DELETE to permanently delete all selected items.

With the iPad, as long as you have iCloud, everything will sync to the device once you register it.  I would wait until you get your contacts in order.
