Have you checked that your function works as expected? Normally
external_import will not override the "pid" field if it already contains
a value, so my guess is that your function returns nothing.
BTW have you tried simply mapping the pid field to the pages table
itself, i.e. something like:
$GLOBALS['TCA']['pages']['columns']['pid']['external'] = array(
0 => array(
'field' => 'parent_id',
'mapping' => array(
'table' => 'pages',
'reference_field' => 'tx_vtmmage_magento_category_id'
This should normally work.
