I have a cell variable 201624x1 with values for date from '01/01/1994 01' until '01/01/1994 01' How do I convert these into Matlab dates

It depends on what "from '01/01/1994 01' to '01/01/1994 01'" means. Why are the two strings equal and what is the trailing "01"?

sorry this was wrong. the time series starts at 01/01/1994 01 in which the 01 is 1 o' clock and ends at 31/12/2016 23 in which 23 is the 24 hrs midnight

Use strfun and datetime functions for conversion

You probably mean cellfun. There is no strfun in base matlab. In any case, datetime can directly operate on a cell array so cellfun would not even be needed.
