Can this adapter also act as a mini displayport for me to connect my monitor through or is it only with with Thunderbolt?

If this does not act as a mini displayport then what USB-C adapter can I use to connect my Dell U3014 to the displayport to get the maximum resolution of 2560 X 1600 at 60Hz versus 3rd party adapters that are limited to 30Hz.

    No. See Apple support document HT207266 "About the compatibility of the Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter".

    You need one of these USB-C cables (not Thunderbolt 3):
    USB-C to DisplayPort cable
    USB-C to Mini DisplayPort cable

    Other possibilities (less desirable) are:
    USB-C to HDMI passive adapter (DisplayPort dual mode)
    USB-C to HDMI 2.0 active adapter
    USB-C to Dual Link DVI adapter
