I have a user that has 5 different contact lists within the main Contacts list:

When creating new email, and going to the To: field the user would like to pick Contacts and be able to view all information from the subfolders as well.

Screenshot of Contacts when looking up To:
Is this possible?

He is currently using Windows 7 with Outlook 2007

When he picks Contacts, like is selected in the screenshot, it only shows those Contacts.

Not any of the subfolders

Trying right-clicking  on the Contact list that has subfolders and click properties, you should see others in the distributions list. You can double-click on the email address.

It sounds like you just want to add the additional contacts folders to display in the address book.  Go about half-way down this Microsoft article to find detailed instructions on doing this.

You need to set up the other lists as an Outlook address book.  
Right click on  one of the contact lists that is not appearing
Choose Properties
Go to the Outlook Address Book Tab
Check show as Outlook Address Book.  
Ok your way out of the dialog boxes.

Sir in your screenshot it clearly is showing the name of the Subfolders as well along with Contacts so you can simply highlight them and get the contacts in them.

If your looking for all Contacts to be shown in Contacts folder in GAL\AddressBook thats not possible ..

Let me know your doubts\queries :)
