Unfortunately you can't do it.
Internet calendar from Gmail in Outlook is READ ONLY.
Gmail setting can be modify to share calendar with some email address and add him permissions to edit events but this is not working in Outlook.

I'm sorry, You can share calendar but there is no "permission" field in OUTLOOK WEBSITE to set up so calendar is Read Only also

If you want to share your Exchange calendar to GMAIL then you can decide about rights
