I'd like to know if a 14" standard wall pipe (.375) @ 9' in length, with 1/2" x 4 flat bar stiffeners welded at 90-degrees apart along its circumference throughout its entire length will support 150,000 pounds. This pipe will have a 1" base-plate with a dimension of 24" x 24" anchored into 8" thick concrete.

Should be fine, with a factor of safety over 3. To check your concrete, you'll need to get a good structural/geotechnical guy to make sure the slab is OK considering the type of soil that it's on.

I'm quite certain of the geological properties of this site is more than adequate. We had an extremely difficult time excavating (prior to the concrete pour) because the site lies on a large formation of limestone. Backfilling and compacting proved to be almost effortless. Thanks for your assistance!
