Do you know asp code? If so, you this code to pull all users from AD OU and all SUB OUs;

Then pust this to a table using asp, change the wscript echo to the response.write code, and you can select what info you want, such as name, and email
On Error Resume Next
Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objCommand =   CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection
objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
objCommand.Properties("Searchscope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE 
objCommand.CommandText = _
    "SELECT Name FROM 'LDAP://ou=NA,dc=fabrikam,dc=com' WHERE objectCategory='user'"  
Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
    Wscript.Echo objRecordSet.Fields("Name").Value

The previous comment has the right idea. You need to have a webserver running some type of server side scripting (perl, asp, php,, etc...). Then you need to write a simple form based application that will search for contact info on people. my company has a similar interface.
