Start with use View | Toolbar | Customize. Right-click on the button you want to customize, and change its Name to include an ampersand ( & ) in front of the letter that you want to use as a hotkey with the Alt key.

Is there any way to do it programmatically using VB, VBA or VBScript?

In Outlook 2000, yes, you have the complete Office CommandBars object to work with. The CommandBarButton.Caption property is the equivalent of the Name in the UI.

Adapted straight from the Help topics on the CommandBar and CommandBarButton objects in Office 2000:

Set newItem = CommandBars("Tools").Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlButton)
With newItem
    .BeginGroup = True
    .Style = msoButtonCaption
    .Caption = "Make &Report"
    .OnAction = "qtrReport"
End With
