It is not possible to link the "Email" live tile to Outlook.  You can create a tile for Outlook, but it wouldn't be the default "email" tile.  Possibly in the future this will be an option.

The email tile is in reality a rather basic Metro application, Outlook is an full featured Office Desktop Application.  Perhaps in Office 2015 we will have a Metro Outlook but I'd not hold my breath.
