UPDATE:
The weather is getting a little cooler up here in the NE, and I've noticed that the moisture has receded back towards the flooring and away from the pipe. To the point that the closest side of the pipe is dry concrete! the other side is still a bit moist, but makes me think the floor is just "drying out."

It hasn't been any dryer or wetter outside for whatever its worth.

any additional thoughts???

Has anyone gone up on the roof to check the roof boot to see if it was installed wrong?

If the boot was not installed right and or is failing then what ever rain or moisture running down would be on outside of pipe...
This is not the case as water/ moisture is coming from underneath up
This depends on weather this pipe is how ever close to the wall to outside if there is gaps then ground water could get in
If not then pipe itself is failing and leaking back in and up.

Is it a problem only during the cold of winter?
Does it go away in the warmth of summer?
Is the window running with condensation?
Is the cold water pipe running with condensation?
Does the toilet cistern have condensation on it?
Are there drips on the floor below the cold water pipes and the toilet?
