Use pscp from PuTTY package. It's a scriptable scp client for Windows.
After putting the file on remote server you can issue the:
/etc/init.d/dhcp restart
command via PuTTY (which I think is scriptable, too),
or alternatively write a simple file monitor on your Debian box
and restart the DHCP server when the configuration file is changed.
