The reason why you can’t install Outlook on iPad is that Outlook application has not been developed for iOS operating system. Microsoft has to develop Outlook for iPad which they would probably never do as Apple is Microsoft’s rival. However I’m sure that if Microsoft develops Outlook for iOS then it will generate more money however there is catch that people will not be interested in Windows if they can get everything on Apple devices.
Another solution is to use Apple’s Mail program.
