Its funny how when you complain about something and write about it the answer comes right out of nowhere. It turn out that I was mistaken (happens now and then) about the lack of this feature in Outlook (and even other office products). It turn out that via the autocorrect features in office, you can indeed enable SmartTags that will recognize numbers, addresses, people, etc in documents and allow the click to call functionality. Mind you its a drop down and click but its better than a kick in the pants.

If you are looking for the SmartTag functionality goto Tools/Options/Spelling/Spelling and Auto Correction/Auto Correct Options/SmartTags. You can enable the phone tag here.

Be careful what you wish for, as you might just get it ;-)
