Not likely with Darwin Calendar Server.

Outlook only understands calendars when communicating with a MAPI  
provider (Exchange). The only way to make it communicate with another  
calendar client is by writing an Outlook plugin, which is what the  
Open Connector folks are working on.

There are other groups that have done this before:

The Zimbra team wrote their own MAPI connector but it only works with  
their client. Their project is open source. I'm not sure if that's  
something that can be leveraged or not.
