Plug your iPhone into iTunes, go into the Sync Section and work through the Outlook portion.

Outlook syncs with the iPhone, not with iTunes. iTunes is just the vehicle to do the sync.

Yes, that is how you connect an iPhone to iTunes (or at least how I do it)

When the phone is plugged in, it appears on the left side of iTunes. Click on it, see the tabs on the right window, and go to the Info Tab. Set up Outlook sync in here.

I think I'm not explaining properly what I need.  Sorry!
The user lost half of the contact on new iPhone5.  iTunes installed on user's personal laptop.  User also has an old iPhone4s with all those contacts.  

So I either need to export those contacts from iTunes or old iPhone4s to the new iPhone5.  Or install iTunes to the new corporate computer and export from there to the Outlook?

That could be messy.

You need to unassociate the first phone, associate the old phone with iTunes, set up the sync to get the contacts into Outlook.

Then unassociate the old phone, associate the new phone and do a one way sync back to the new phone.

Then set everything up normally. Work carefully.

I'd suggest using a common denominator 3rd party solution like GMAIL to recover and fix the contacts.
Setup a GMAIL account and add it to the older iPhone and sync all the contact from that iPhone to GMAIL.  Now add that GMAIL account to the new iPhone and you can overwrite or merge the contacts on the  iPhone 5.

More detail on adding GMAIL accounts and contacts provided here and you can also get more detail on Google GMail help

Thank you!    What if I export old iphone's contacts to the iCloud and then sync it with new Iphone.  Would that work?

John HurstBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
I think you need to involve Outlook. The contacts belong to Outlook, not to iTunes or iCloud.

Maybe you just need a iPhone contacts transfer tool that helps you transfer contacts from iPhone 4S to iPhone easily. Here is a guide about how to transfer contacts between two iPhone. You won't lose any existing data on both of iPhones during transferring.
