I have, in our office LAN, a  DELL Inspiron 14r laptop with Windows 10 and Office 365 installed. User of this PC wants to eliminate Outlook from the Office Suite. I have successfully installed MaliBird Lite and user is happy. Now user wants Outlook removed or at least deactivated. My search of the Internet has not yet found a solution that applies to the version (?) of Office 365 we have. Seems the only option from control Panel is removal of MS Office, not individual components.

How can I accomplish this removal/deactivation of Outlook?

It seems that with the O365 version you will need to use the Office Deployment Tool to exclude certain aspects of office from being installed or uninstalled. See the below link for assistance with this question:
