After looking into it with the help of some friends, I'm convinced that the Phantom Mag skill is not converting DEX into the other stats properly, only giving half of the conversion that it is supposed to. If you equip a 200 DEX mag it should theoretically give the same as a 200 RNG mag, but this is not the case only giving around half of the amount it is supposed to. This leads me to believe that the skill itself is bugged, only giving half DEX conversion into the other stats as opposed to the full 100% that the skill suggests. I don't know if it's just something that was left unchanged on the skill tree or if it's supposed to give the full 100% but I think one of the two should be changed regardless.
