You need to setup another proxy on Server 1. Take squid for example,
in squid.conf, set upstream server using cache_peer and authentication
parameters (please refer to squid manual because I don't know how to
do it :-P ), and set a port that handles intercepted traffic (or it
won't work!):

http_port <local_squid_port> intercept

and insert the following iptables rule:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -s <ip_addr_for_pptp> -p tcp --dport 80
-j REDIRECT --to-port <local_squid_port>
