Bad News - Outlook 2011 does not sync with Google Calendar or Contacts
Microsoft has given no indication they would add CalDAV or CardDAV support to Outlook on OSX.
You can only access the Google email via IMAP

There WAS a solution in OSX 10.7 that allowed Outlook to sync with iCal which in turn linked to Google Calendars - this was a 3rd party app called SpanningSync but it has since been discontinued.

OSX Calendar and Contact applications DO have support for CalDAV and CardDAV and can therefore sync with Google but trying to get this onto Outlook is not viable... you will get constant sync errors or connection problems.
