From what I know and understand about sharing contacts and calendars, it is only possible if you have an exchange setup (http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/sharing/sharing-outlook-calendar-and-contacts/),
I would have to assume that this has to do with where the information is stored.  A user contacts in an Exchange environment is stored on the server where it is always accessible, but when you do not have a central repository like a server you can not achieve this.  The way you have Outlook setup does not allow for this.  The data is stored in a PST and only one mailbox at a time can connect to this PST.  Since this is the case users would never be able to access the PST while you are in it.  

This link has some methods, but none of them accept a third-party add-in to achieve this. The link below highlights some of these options and the add-in at the end of the article.  I have not used or tested this option, but it might be something that will help you get to a desired goal.

I recommend migrating them to exchange if you can, otherwise sharing calendars through 3rd party apps will not be that fun to do and can be time billable for you, but it may be out of their budget and if it breaks....more cost. Exchange is the answer for my clients who call in with this request.

Outlook.com might work for you, it's a "free mini exchange server" but I don't know the exact limitations of it. I think others might need to have full access. It can be confusing.
