Yes it's possible! 

first go to Outlook.com and create your account from the web browser on your computer.

then download the app from google play on your phone and login to it with the email and password you created your account with.

I must mention, originally when it Outlook app was Hotmail app, it has high battery usage issues. Recently I read somewhere that this problem still exist in the Outlook app. This is the reason I still refuse to use it.

 

I must say, those not aware, you can use Gmail app for your Hotmail / Outlook account too. I prefer another app that does not require the phone sync to be turned on for push mail though.

Just do what saeed_dc says should be very easy from that point.

the gmail app also supports outlook the built in "mail" exchange app do as well, but that one is very wonky.

 

no need to have a gmail app AND an outlook app, if either one can access both
