Are you using Exchange server or POP3?
Outlook is designed to NOT allow calendar sharing without Exchange.
You may want to look into hosted Exchange for an environment of your size.
there are also some third party solutions that may work.

Depending on your budget. Hosted Exchange is roughly $10 per month per user and has all of the features of exchange. If the client has a laptop they are connected to their mail whenever they are connected to the internet. The downside is its'speed is dependant on your internet speed and if you lose internet connection, you are not connected to your mail.
I believe Microsoft has started selling its' own hosted Echange, I am told at half that price.
Let me know if I can help out in more detial.
