The command would be:
Update-OfflineAddressBook -Identity "My OAB"

Open in new window

OR I'd combine two and add a force:

Get-OfflineAddressBook | Update-OfflineAddressBook -Force

Open in new window

The problem is usually Outlook does not update!
Exchange – New User(s) Not Showing Up On Global Address List
