I don't know why there's no build-key-pass.bat but the only difference 
between the linux versions is:

# diff build-key build-key-pass
<       openssl req -days 3650 -nodes -new -keyout $1.key -out $1.csr 
-config $KEY_CONFIG && \
 >       openssl req -days 3650 -new -keyout $1.key -out $1.csr -config 

so you could try creating your own build-key-pass.bat:
- start with build-key.bat, copy it to build-key-pass.bat
- remove -nodes from the build-key-pass.bat file
