I'm not sure I understand your question correctly, but there is a field mapping download available for Outlook 98 at http://officeupdate.microsoft.com under Outlook->Downloads (search page for 'mapping').

The easiest way to do this is to first export to an access database. Outlook will create a table in the access database with the exact corect format. Next step is to get your table into the just created table. Use a "add query". Now you are ready to import the data into outlook. Note that you cannot import data from access into custom outlook fields.
