git clone /etc/puppet/modules/puppi

but so far I can't run anything, even the basic command:

class { 'puppi': }

C:\ProgramData\PuppetLabs\puppet\etc\manifests>puppet apply site.pp

Notice: Compiled catalog for mypc in environment production in 1.49 seconds
Error: Parameter path failed on File ...

Based upon all the information in the manifests files the module does not support the windows platform. A good indicator is the path that was referenced that could not be found "/usr/sbin/puppi" which is a linux path. Aside from possibly changing the paths that are hard coded in the manifests the actual code utilizes shell scripts to perform the necessary tasks so there likely is no quick option to convert such a module to support windows.
