With PPTP you should be able to ping both sides. This means you should be able to ping the MT running PPTP server from the internet, and the device running the PPTP client from your Mikrotik. I have experienced the same issue with ISP's using some form of proxy or NAT.

How often does the gateway IP change? Consider Netwatch. You could place a script there that fire's off your script that modifies the routing marks, and also then changes the netwatch to "watch" the correct gateway again.

Hope it helps...
