How can I reuse IPA files I have in my iTunes application and associate those with the Sophos Mobile Control server, deploying the apps to a device?

This is an operating system restriction. It is not possible to deploy applications (IPA files) you find in your personal iTunes folder.
These applications are bound to the Apple ID they were downloaded with and an account cannot be applied to another device using a different iTunes account.
In order to resolve the issue, you will need to create a software package with the link to the application in the Apple App Store. This package can then be deployed and the user would get a link to the app to install.
