OST is just a cache file that only helps you access your Outlook Profile Offline. Sometimes due to many reasons, if the OST file has corrupted, then you can delete the OST file from the local folder and can recreate the OST file from the network server. However, When the user profile has been deleted from the Network server and users don’t have the mailbox backup, they can use the local saved OST file to regain their mailbox data in the PST file format. That PST you can import to new Outlook profile without any hassle. Unfortunately, there are no free tools or PowerShell commands to convert the encrypted orphaned OST file. You have to go with 3rd party tools for this work. You can check the MVP discussion and take the idea about the some recommended OST converter tool available in the market,

Hi, @Linkang If the need to convert Outlook OST file to PST format arises, There are no PowerShell commands that can read OST files or convert OST to PST, the problem is that Microsoft never really exposed OST file format in .NET classes, which means PowerShell's got nothing to build on but there are some manual methods and third-party tools you could potentially use. One such trustworthy tool is Shoviv OST to PST file Converter.
So, as far as converting OST to PST using PowerShell is concerned, it isn’t feasible as of now.

We'll need to use Outlook self to manually convert an OST file to a PST. Ensure that you can access the original Outlook profile.

I am not sure that you are capable of converting OST files to PST format by using Powell script or not. As I belongs to a non-technical background, so I don't know much about this. I can only confirm you about these file format of OST and PST.
So, let me share you my thoughts. Once your Outlook gets disconnected than there is a OST file in background which contains all the data of your Outlook. When you are trying to connect back to Outlook, then you'll get an error. In that case, you can only import PST file to Outlook which is only a single option in Outlook. There is a need of converting your OST files into PST format.
Now, the question is can I convert those OST files into PST by using Powershell script or not. I don't confirm you about it. But I can share you some third-party tools which helps you! I usually preferred to ZOOK OST to PST Converter for my cases when I got these issues of ost and pst. This tool is so helpful in resolving these issues. You can also opt to use this and hopefully this will help you too!
Thanks and Regards
