In Outlook 2013, create a new Contact Group, select Add Members drop-down and click New E-mail Contact.  Enter a name and email address.  Save & Close.  This action will create a Contact group and it will create an Outlook contact for each email address you entered.

The only other options are to create an Outlook contact first and add them to the Contact Group, or select a name from the Exchange address book, provided you are connected to an Exchange server.

Those are the only ways I know how to create a Contact Group.
