Should a custom 404 page return a 200 status code or a 404 status code? IIS is configured to return this page if a 404 is encountered. However, I'm not sure if the custom 404 page should be considered ok (with a 200 status code) since technically this page is valid OR should it return a 404 since it is the "404" page?

I always leave my 404 pages with the 404 code.  It's more useful to me in logs for filtering that way.  The customizations to your 404 page are meant to enhance the user experience.
