comment Draw dipole field lines
I suggest \draw circle[radius=1]; \clip (-5,-3) rectangle (5,3) (0,0) circle[radius=1]; and then draw away. For example: \foreach \val in {2,3,5,8,12,20,50,140} \draw[delta angle=360] (0,0) arc[start angle=0, y radius=\val, x radius=2*\val] -- cycle (0,0) arc[start angle=180, y radius=\val, x radius=2*\val] -- cycle;

comment Draw dipole field lines
What is the mathematical description of these field lines? Have you tried to paths with various in and out angles? Or plain ellipses? What is the problem you have? What is the connection between your image and your code?

comment How can I make the loops fatter?
loop left is defined as left, out=195, in=165, loop (left is for the nodes, loop includes settings for looseness, min distance and the every loop style). So the angles are hard-coded. However you could define something like wider loop left/.style={left, out=220, in=140, loop}. If you want a more flexible approach, you can do that … — By the way, with every loop/.style you overwrite everything in that style, this is the reason why there's no arrow. Use .append style if you don't want to overwrite settings.

Related: Q107227. Please see also Q9386. Have you considered doing this in a matrix?

comment TikZ - bug in \pgfarrowsdeclarecombine*?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because since the question has been asked, PGF changed the handling of arrows and also combining arrows. With the new version of combining arrows, the question is outdated.

comment How to extract a row, given columns?
Do not put \pgfmathparse inside an \edef/\xdef. Do \pgfmathparse{{\x}[#1]}\xdef\rowans{\rowans\pgfmathresult} instead, for example. If you just do want to typeset the result, you don't need any \xdef or \rowans you can just do that in the loop: \pgfmathprint{{\x}[#1]}.

comment Shading applied only to the first element with foreach
++ is not a calculation specification but denotes a relative coordinate (which all following relative coordinate specifications are relative to, in contrast to +). Compare to (A) -- ++ (6*\x,0).

comment Shading applied only to the first element with foreach
No, ([xshift=<value> cm]<sth>) is not the same as ([xshift=(0:<value>)<sth>), except when x=(0:1cm) (the default). In my eyes, a fundamental difference in TikZ/PGF. But, yes, that doesn't concern OP's problem (which you have identified correctly).

comment Shading applied only to the first element with foreach
If the x vector has been changed (say x=2cm or x=(30:1cm)) then (6*\x,0) and (6*\x cm,0) will not be the same anymore.
