Have you tried the instructions in this article from Microsoft:

Steve626: unfortunately, there is a known flaw/bug in Outlook 2011 that prevents the import from mail.
I am going to call M$ tomorrow to see when a fix is coming, because it is NOT acceptable for a $200 software package to have such a fundamental failing, see the last post:

In the meantime, while waiting for Microsoft to fix this, I would suggest that you simply leave the previous emails in Mail where they are now, treating it like an "archive" of sorts. I actually did that some years ago when at work my employer switched from Eudora to MS-Entourage (now switched again to Outlook) and I simply imported all my Eudora emails to Apple Mail and left them there. You can set up Apple Mail so it can access emails on the MS-Exchange server along with Outlook, so if you decide to forward or respond to one of the "archived" emails it works ok.
It's not a great solution, but for me at least it has worked out pretty well.
