So this is just an IP and block of unused IP's on the same subnet as the LAN
interface- where clients will be allocated connection from and the server
will listen on for PPTP?

I would imagine it has everything to do with the "point to point" in PPTP.
Imagine its a numbered interface...

I would do (and have done) the following:

Pick an IP in your LAN block (I always choose one above or below the
m0n0wall box IP). Each of the IPs in the /28 PPTP subnet (which should exist
on the defined LAN subnet) will use this as its remote IP. 

Its times like this that I wish I remember PPP better. Oh well, I hope I've
got it right. :)
