BMW Store of Cincinnati, for small ding on my windshield that's smaller than a dime and doesn't leak, is attempting to charge me $1,400.

Does this seem like a total hosing to anyone else? What should I be paying for a new one? Technically, I've been driving for 2 months with it and nothing has happened.

You probably have a hud right? You might be able to get it a little cheaper, but its not going to be $500. If you get other quotes on your replacement windshield, you will want BMW OEM glass, and it will likely be north of 1k.

Replacement windshields will run you north of $1000. But if the affected area is as small as you say why not use Safelite (or similar) to repair it? If it must be replaced and you have the standard $500 deductible it might be worth contacting your insurance company.

Why not claim it under your glass coverage? Also of it is a chip that isn't spreading those can usually be filled. Only exception might be if it is in drivers line of vision.

Different insurance policies either have specific glass coverage, or dont (I have AAA and they dont have glass coverage specifically).

In any case unless the OP has a 1500 deductible, it would be cheaper to file this under his insurance, either specific glass coverage, or comprehensive (which does not add points to your insurance policy).
