Does anyone know what the crimps telephone engineers use to join wires
together in roadside boxes are called?
Or where to get some, and a crimping tool?
They are blue, about 22 by 7 by 3 mm with one end rounded and one end
open for the wires to go in, and sometimes if a repairman has been
working you can see a few lying around on the pavement.

Generically they are IDC connectors, "insulation displacement connectors"
and the installation tool is called a Krohn tool. You can search for
these, but I can't point you at the specific wire-to-wire connector you
are thinking of.
