With IPsec the communication goes from the defined local network to the defined remote network (and
vice versa) through the tunnel.
Therefore you will not be able to directly communicate to other IPsec endpoints as either the source
or the destination network will not match the IPsec definitions.
Even routing will not help: think at the IPsec definition like a firewall rule which allows only
traffic if it match both source and destination.

With OpenVPN you can allow transit over the server (in pfSense is the "client-to-client VPN"

I'm not sure if you can do that with PPTP.

Or you use some sort of proxy in your office LAN...

Hope this helps
