Not to be a total *****, but they aren't really interconnected directly.
The rudder pedals do indeed give about 7 degrees of steering, and if the
nosewheel is turned, the tiller will turn as a result of the nosewheel
displacement. Part of the preflight checks on all Boeings is to hold the
tiller still and deflect the rudder pedals to check for freedom of
travel. The reason for holding the tiller is the check is usually done
while taxiing, and it's rude to wander drunkenly about the tarmac.
