I'm have tried enabling OWA per user from within ADUC.  When I click apply after enabling OWA I receive the error that the directory service attribute or value already exists and OWA remains disabled.  Error code is 8007200d.  Any help would be appreciated.

Check the host headers in IIS, to make sure it's pointing to port 80.
You can use KB312422: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;312422
 to do that.
Do you have more than one smtp address for those users ?
Verify you recipient serivces pointing to the right DC, if you have more than one try to change it, rebuild and update the RUS.

Problem lies somewhere with the AD attributes.  Error message is received within Active Directory Users and Computers when trying to enable the Exchange Feature " OWA".  Enable or Disable OWA works for all accounts except 2.  The error message is received when trying to apply property changes within Active Directory Users and Computers.

That's a little bit different from what I pictured.
In that case, why do you want to go through the troubleshooting any-way.
I mean if those are only 2 users, just recreate user accounts after exmerging out their mailboxes, and exmerge their mailboxes in.
Before you do that just try to change it using adsiedit.msc (windows support tools)
Expand your domain container, locate user account, go to properties, attribute -> Protocol Settings.
First number can be 0 or 1, you can edit it manually:
0 - owa disabled
1- owa enabled
Try change it and see if that is reflecting in ADUC.
