What you want is normally sold under the category of Interactive Voice Response (IVR).
There are expensive units from major manufacturers such as Avaya, Cisco, Syntellect  (http://www.syntellect.com/pages/products/communications_portal.aspx)
affordable systems from multipurpose machines like those from Amtelco and AVST(http://www.avst.com/), and options to build your own inexpensive or open source software (http://www.ivrsoft.com/) and standard interface boards (Dialogic, etc.) in a PC.
Most of these come with the ability to query external databases through standard protocols, although some require you to import the database you are checking against.  Most also offer the option for voice recognition to respond to the questions instead of just using the DTMF ("touch tone") pad.
There are companies that specialize is such developing solutions using this technology, such as Voxeo  http://www.voxeo.com/
