OSPF External Routes will automatically become Type E2 routes with metric of 20. A default metric is already implemented within the protocol, unlike other dynamic routing protocols.

The command you entered above will work.

If you want to configure metric 150 and tag 20, the command is

redistribute eigrp 99 subnets metric 150 tag 20

Yes without the metric and route tag as supplied by Edison the requirements in your original post would not be met.

Correct, without the metric and the tag, the redistribute route will be metric = 20 and tag = null (no tag)

You don't need a route-map to tag the routes on this router. With the command Edison supplied you are applying the tag not matching the tag.

However if you then wanted to match that tag on other routers within your network you could use a route-map to achieve that.
