I am renaming and reorganizing all of my photo file folders according Peter Krogh's DAM system (The DAM Book) outside of LR. What then do I do about my preexisting LR catalog? How will it know where everything is? Or how do I tell it where everything is? Is there a simple way of having the catalog follow the file structure?

If you change your fine names outside of Lightroom you can essentially forget all about your Lightroom catalog...there is no way you would EVER be able to go through and find all the "missing" files such a rename would cause...If you had saved out all your edits to the original files via .xmp, you could then add the renamed files and folders all over again...
You really need to reconsider your plans...you should either do the folder/file renaming in Lightroom or start over in Lightroom AFTER you've got your folders and file organized...
But in any event, you should consider long and hard before you do anything you are gonna regret...
