Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
This is where it would be nice to plug it into a code reader, but lets go over some probabilities. Did you check to see if the immobiliser is active ? Fuse 28 (fuel) and 29 (ignition) are fed by the same ECU output. Check them. Fuel pump relay is #208 .Check. Also, the Passat has a strange quirk, where it has 2 temp sensors. The ECU checks both and if there is a discrepancy, it wont start. Start with this and good luck.

Sounds like the old nikasil problem.Remove all of the spark plugs and squirt oil down each bore,replace plugs and she should fire up.
