I don't think there is a tar file containing all the external dependencies; however, it shouldn't be too hard to generate one yourself. As you have already pointed out, you can use rosdep satisfy <packages> to generate a list of required packages that have not been installed yet. (Or use rosdep depdb <packages> to get a list of all the packages, even those that have been installed.)

Now, you can use any of the usual Ubuntu offline installation methods to generate a list of packages on your Ubuntu machine, download them from the Windows machine and install them on Ubuntu. My favourite is apt-offline.
