  • Two things:

    first you should set the orginatingleadid in contact when you create it. after when you update the contact you should update the lead based on this orginatingleadid, but make sure that lead is not in closed state. this relationship is out-of-box in crm so when you qualify a lead the values are set in corresponding account and contact records
