I have purchased a wildcard SSL and completed the SSL onto my IIS server.  I then exported the pfx file and sent it to my linux servre which is going to be hosting subdomains of the main domain.

I am confused as to how to convert the .pfx file into a usable key that I am import into nginx and use for multiple subdomains.

Basically you need to extract the private key and the certificate. Then you can configure a nginx vhost some thing like this
                server {
                listen 443;
                ssl on;
                ssl_certificate /etc/nginx/mycert.pem
                ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/mykey.pem

                .....
              }
