do you still get the -1 modifier if you use your iron fist as a shield?
If you decide to equip your Ogres with a Handweapon and an Ironfist you effectively lose your Ogre Club (granted you can choose to forgo the Ironfist upgrade and choose to fight with your Ogre Club but then those points would be a complete waste). Handweapon and Ironfist as seen in the Bulls entry (or any other entry that has access to Ironfists) does not mean "Ogre Club and Ironfist".
So no when using ironfists you do not benefit from the Ogre Club rule (As you don't have one).
as said in the errata
Q. When a unit of Ogre Bulls is equipped with hand
weapons and Ironfists, do they lose, or retain their

modifier, or +1 extra attack and no extra armour
hope that helps
Dear Ogre Friends
I have a question with this Ironfist thing. Can I use my Bruiser with a Great Weapon and the Iron fist at the same time? Can I use the Ironfist as a shield to get a +1 armor and still use the GW?
you can take both on a bruiser but you have to select one or the other when combat starts and keep that option untill the combat ends. So if you use the ironfist as shield or extra hand weapon you can't use the great weapon and vice versa.
