I can see you have also posted a discussion over here http://community.marketo.com/MarketoDiscussionDetail?id=90650000000PjgmAAC which means you seem to have found the answer.
For the benefit of everyone else out there, and without getting into a debate over this as best practice!, the way to accomplish this is to add leads to lead queues in SFDC using the Sync to SFDC flow step.
Once the lead goes into the CRM, if the person is actually a SFDC Contact, Marketo will create a duplicate lead and add the new lead to the lead queue, while leaving the existing Contact alone.
For a while we had a similar use case here. Sales had a single queue to look at and wanted duplicates of contacts so they can see them in thier queue.
We had to say no, but gave them an alternative.
We created a task Inquery process in SFDC. For every existing lead and contact that have a lead owner who did a trial download or White Paper, we trigger a task for the lead owners. The custom Task in SFDC, we added Lead status values that map to the original lead status. We then built 'Views' for the sales reps in SFDC.
So they can have visibility into thier net new leads in queues and Task alerts for returning customers/ existing leads.
