What version of exchange?  Tabs only appear if you are using certain version.  See this question I helped with

im afraid Microsoft removed these tools from exchange 2007 and 2010. They were added by exchange 2003 tools which you cant install on to windows 2008, sorry!

If you are using Exchange 2007 or 2010 which you must be if you are using Windows 2008 R2 then this is not possible, all exchange management is done through the Exchange Management Console or Exchange Management Shell.

Using the EMS or EMC you can also create users.

If you are using Exchange 2003 then you cannot install the Exchange Management tools on Windows 2008.

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Are you using exchange 2003, 2007 or 2010?  If you are not using exchange 2003 then you will have to use the exchange manage console or the exchange management shell for administration.  

do you have advanced view checked in AD ?

Not that you should do it, but I believe that you can copy over a few DLLs from an Exchange 2K3 server and register them to give ADUC access to the old Exchange tabs. You don't want to be making changes there, but it can be done for viewing the properties.
