Share the folder1 on the windows system and mount the folder on Linux.
Then link both the folder on linux.( folder2 and folder1 ( mounted on linux) ).
That won't sync them, it will just allow you to access the same folder from Linux. If the intent is just to share data between the two machines, that's fine. If the intent is to truly sync them, you'll need some script or tool to do it.

There's Microsoft's SyncToy, which I've used, but not often.
There's also a tool called GoodSync, which I've used more often, and does a really good job.
And there are a bunch of other tools that will do this.

None of these tools will keep things continuously synced - there's pretty much always going to be a sync interval, say every 15 minutes. Then it will sync up any changes. You can usually (I know you can with GoodSync) set up uni-directional or bi-directional syncing. Things like that.
