I'm running Office 365 and have a Contact List app in Sharepoint Online.  This contact list is synchronized with Outlook and works well.

I'm also running Office Mobile on my android phone.  Shared documents show up and work well on my phone, but I can't figure out how to get a Contact List to show up in Sharepoint on my Office Mobile App.

Just open the SharePoint site using the mobile device browser. The mobile apps are nice, but they cover specific scenarios only. Make sure to also hit the 'switch to PC view' under the gear icon, as some functionality might not be available in the mobile version.

You will need to first sync the SharePoint contact list with Outlook -- which can then be accessed through the normal Email/Contacts sync with the Android device.

So each individual user must sync the SharePoint contact list with their local Outlook?   Doing so does sync automatically with my android phone, so that appears to work.

I'm assuming each user will have to be running Outlook 2013 locally and this will not work with Outlook Web App, correct?

Yes, each user must sync with Outlook.  And, correct, Syncing with Outlook just adds it as a .pst file for Outlook, so it won't be seen in OWA.

If synching with Outlook adds it as a pst, is it a live, continuous sync or must it be manually refreshed periodically?

It'll sync automatically on scheduled intervals by default.  You can modify this behavior as you would like:
