You need to enable the developer tab, under file customize ribbon check the developer box on the right.  When you open the new contact form, click the developer tab then click design this form.  You can change alot using this.  hope it helps

Then....  
Save the edited contact form as an outlook template
Publish the template using the developer tab
Right click the contacts folder icon and choose properties, then "when posting to this folder use" select forms and find your published template.
