So you yourself do not have an Outlook account, correct?
If you do, it would seem the simple way to handle this would be to set up your iPhone w/ your Exchange account, even if you only want the Calendar function (not email or contacts). That way, the appointments go directly to your Calendar for accepting/denying and any updates happen directly there as well. At least, that's how it works on my iPhone & iPad (iOS 6).
Here is an article on this:

I don't have an Exchange account. We are in the process of changing it, as we currently have pop...
I just don't understand why Outlook and my iPad are not communicating. The initial appointment comes through fine but any adjustments get lost in translation?!? Odd.

It seems the recurring theme on these types of problems is the use of a POP email account. Something originates in corrupting or blunting the full affect of an ics event from Outlook through this method.
I guess just thinking about it, this makes some sense in that Microsoft has probably not fully developed their ActiveSync to work properly with POP accounts, especially w/in Mac OS (if you use that). It's understandable that their motivation is towards Exchange interoperability and even further, the need to support an "old" technology like POP.
Sorry I couldn't be more help, but perhaps you'll just have to continue to work around this until your migration to Exchange is complete.
