There is no password tool in Outlook.
Passwords are an AD function, not really Exchange. You can access EMC from a user's workstation using RDP. Otherwise looking at one of the password reset utilities - they usually run through a web browser.

As Simon notes above, there's no way to reset your password through Outlook.

If you are just resetting passwords, there's no real need to do this through the Exchange Management Console as it can also be done through Active Directory Users and Computers.

To install EMC on a workstation you can follow the steps in this article:

I would look at installing the AD tools in RSAT on a Windows 7 PC (if you have one) as you can also manage accounts using this.
