The registry is the easiest place to find this. All PSTs/OSTs are included in search catalog so thats probably the easiest place to look.

get on one of your machines and check the following registry keys:
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\<Version ID>\Outlook\Search
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\<Version ID>\Outlook\Search\Catalog

This contains a Reg_Dword item and uses the fuill path to the PST/OST as the key label.
You could export this key or output the key names to a file/central location via a script.
