To my knowledge this is not possible and could cause problems to your Outlook clients.  You are looking at a MAPI property that is uniquely set per database\per item. For example, in one database you may find it as 0x91080003 but in another it might be 0x82399516. Next the value is a 0-3 range. Outlook only recognizes these values. 0 = Free, 1 = Tentative, 2 = Busy, 3 = Out of Office.  If you try and set it to say 4, Outlook could crash when attempting to view that item because 4 is out of the 0-3 range.
