There should never be a need to access native Windows SSL/TSL.
Windows has to conform exactly to the international standards, so likely Windows just ported OpenSSL.  If there was any difference between Window's native SSL/TSL and OpenSSL, then the Windows version would have to be broken and should not be used.
The whole point of SSL/TSL is to cross the whole network, so can never be proprietary.
Since Windows native SSL/TSL can not have its source code studied, is must always be suspect.
Even if not defective, it could have backdoors.
Should never be used.

As far as I can remember, Pegasus does not support Windows native SSL/TLS. 
But patch for the support will be welcome.

I wanted to check if Pegasus supports Windows Native SSL/ crypto library. Can Pegasus be built with Windows native SSL, instead of OpenSSL? If not, is there any plan for future?
