Yes there is a powershell command called Import-RecipientDataProperty

The size via powershell is max 10KB, I know as I tried this last week with various sizes above this.

Some 3rd party tools may be able to upload up to 100KB.

The articles below shows the PS method:

64x64 pixels (96 dpi, 24 bit depth, approx. 2KB), the size used for the AD thumbnailPhoto attribute. If we upload a photo to Exchange, Exchange will automatically create a 64x64 pixel version of that photo and update the user's thumbnailPhoto attribute.

PowerShell commands to upload photo to exchange server,

Open the Exchange Management Shell and enter:
Import-RecipientDataProperty -Identity "Rachel Peach" -Picture -FileData ([Byte[]$(Get-Content -Path "C:\photos\RachelPeach.jpg" -Encoding Byte -ReadCount 0))

...replacing Rachel Peach with the name of the person you want to import a photo for of course.

Hi,
You can do this by going through Active Directory. There are some prerequisites, which you have to follow for changing or setting a profile picture in Exchange Server. Those prerequisites are mentioned below:
1. Image size should not be more than 10 KB.
2. The file format should be JPG (JPEG).

Go through below mentioned links to see the complete way for changing profile image:
