You cannot shrink an FFS/UFS partition.
You cannot convert an FFS/UFS partition to NTFS (..or any other filesystem for that matter).

The suggestion to use FAT32 on an external USB device for exchanging files between OpenBSD and Windows is probably the easiest.

If you wish to retain file permission information on files you have, it might be a good idea to tar/gzip(bzip2) them prior to storing them on a FAT file system.

Good luck.
