I have a similar setup.  I use pptpd as the vpn server.  My
main config file is pretty simple:

   option /etc/ppp/pptpd-options

It sounds like your ipad traffic is making its way to the
PPTP server, but it is getting stopped there.  You need to
set up a NAT so that the ipad's traffic is masqueraded onto
the pptp server's main network interface.

I use shorewall.  One line in /etc/shorewall/masq like this
does the trick for me.

eth0    # OpenVPN and PPTP

But you might also just use an iptables rule or ufw rule to
do it.
