Not really an answer but...

Yes, you can do this, but to me it would just be simpler to add the contact to "outlook", then you can link the contacts into Access and use them the same way

This way you add contacts in one place only, and the contacts will remain synchronized in both applications automatically.

Yes that would be a good solution but not for this particular situation - has to be done Access to Outlook

All the info to do this is in this link:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee208547%28v=office.12%29.aspx

But there is a sample file included, that may save you some trouble:
https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ProjectName=odcac2007h2&ReleaseId=2669

The kicker here is that  you need to be fairly good at vba to get this going in your specific environment.

But the sample does work directly (I just tested it and it worked fine without any modifications)

I am sure there are other similar approaches out there, so you can wait for other experts to chime in as well...
