You can follow below steps.

  1. Create Contact record for every single picklist value
  2. Create Another field with Contact Lookup
  3. Using the dataloader or trigger to update your historical data with corresponding contact record id.
  4. Delete your picklist field and start using your new Contact lookup field.

P.S. As data loader is not available in PE edition you can use external tool such as Excel Connector or SimpleImport or Import 2
