Have the same problem. Just found a way. You need to have iTune Match on and have songs in the cloud. Hit View/View Options. Make sure iCloud Status is checked. Organise your library according to the iCloud Status column (click on iCloud Status). This will list them in order of Matched,Uploaded,Waiting, and Duplicates. Click on the top duplicate song, scroll to the bottom duplicate song, hit and hold shift and click on that song, right click on the highlighted songs and hit delete. Finally!!

Use Shift > View > Show Exact Duplicates to reveal the duplicates as this is normally a more useful selection. You need to manually select all but one of each repeating group to remove. If the duplicates were added recently sorting on date added and deleting the recent additions can be straightforward, although you'll want to make sure there really two sets of files with the same content before you throw any away otherwise you may find your remaining tracks have been broken by the clean-up process.
