R2 has static route of

R1 R2 run EIGRP, R2 redistribute the static route to EIGRP

Yes, R1 should place the /32 route in the routing table. Although it is learned from a source with a greater AD than its directly connected route, it is not comparable. The 2 routes are not comparable because they have different length prefixes. The longer prefix always wins, regardless of AD.
