Are all users using OL / OWA ?
Which versions of OL has been tested so far ?
Is it the same condition when OWA is accessed by affected users ?
Have you tried to recreate profiles ?
Switch from offline to native mode of OL ?

Ok, let me get something clear - you have couple of contacts created in AD who have internal email address as well as external.

The ones who are having internal ones - are seen in GAL easily (in offline mode)
The ones who are having external ones - are not seen in GAL (in offline mode)

Am i correct here ??

Well, then why not concentrate on checking if Offline address list is actually being generating or simply giving you a slip.

Please increase diagnostic logging on OAL Generator under MSExchangeSA to maximum. This would be found under server properties.

Now, go under recipients - offline address list - default offline address list - right click rebuild.

Check application log for errors - please post here.

Rebuild once more and check if event id 9106 starts and event id 9107 ends succesfully.

Well, create a new outlook profile in offline mode and keep fingers crossed that those external contacts are seen in GAL
