If I have my Outlook on my secondary monitor and I create a new email, the new email window closes out my Windows 8 Metro and reveals the new email window on the primary monitor.

Is there any way to keep new windows created to the same monitor based on which monitor the program is located?

No.  You can accomplish this if writing your own programs but most (if not all) off-the-shelf programs will open new windows on the monitor that is designated as your home screen.
