I am using Exchange 365:

- I can reset users password in office 365 through the web portal. Then I have to manually change the password in outlook 2013 settings.
- Is it a better way of doing this, because I have 200 user that used outlook 2013. (basically when I change the password in Office 365, I want it change in outlook automatically)

isn't the responsibility of each user to manage their passwords? They have to re-enter their password on their various devices that connect to o365 when needed.

Resetting a user's password is very different from having the user change his own password, there is no functionality that will achieve auto-login for this scenario. If you want apps to auto-login with the user's password in general you have to deploy some form of SSO, either AD FS or AAD Connect Seamless Sso. You will also need to ensure that the application itself supports this, which in the case of Outlook means at minimum 2013 SP1 with modern authentication enabled.
