The people at my job in charge of maintaining contacts are using Sharepoint to enter contacts and then syncing the lists with Outlook. They have two columns in Outlook that they've created to organize the contacts, a "Category" tag and a "Keyword" tag, They want to be able to see these categories in Outlook when they sync them. Is this possible?

Nope, Outlook by default uses a predefined SharePoint list schema for Contacts, Tasks, etc. So any new field that you add will not show up in your Outlook client.
