That's a tough one, not knowing what your cardfile looks like.
Theres nothing direct I'm sure. What you'll have to do might not be easier than retyping.
You need to export the cardfile to a text file. Do this by setting up a Generic Text Only Printer that prints to File.
Print All Cards to a file. Open that File up in Word and strip it down to data only in some kind of recognizable record pattern.
Make a tab delimited file out of it and provide it with the header information Outlook needs to import it.
Then Import through Outlook's Import wizard.

There is no way to import these, but walterq's example sounds like the best way.
