In general, mains power wiring MUST be in its own conduit, separate from 
non-power wiring (generally called "low voltage wiring". In other words, 
if you need to run mains power and coax/control cables to your tower in 
conduit, you must have two conduit runs, one for power and one for RF 
and rotator.

I don't have much experience pulling cable into conduit, but I've heard 
that some (all?) pulling juice can turn into glue as it dries. I'd get 
advice from electricians who do this all the time on this before using 
any pulling lubricant.
