Anything is *possible*, it just depends on how much pain you want to
inflict on yourself. Various methods include:

- run it in a virtual running Windows
- run it in WINE (probably won't work)
- dual boot into Windows for when you want to do email

To be perfectly honest, the real answer is probably "no". Not if you
want to run it on Linux in any meaningful way. If there are specific
features of Outlook that you need, that no other mail client can give
you, then you are probably stuck with running it on Windows. Or use the
OWA web client.

Linux has a plethora of excellent mail clients, and there are a zillion
web clients. Ten minutes talking to Uncle Google will turn up a dozen
options for you to try.
