The easiest way to do this would be installing Thunderbird on the Windows system where the original Outlook is installed. When running Thunderbird for the first time it asks you if it should import anything. After that is done you could just copy the Thunderbird profile to the Linux system.

See as well https://kb.mozillazine.org/Import_.pst_files and especially http://kb.mozillazine.org/Import_.pst_files#Linux where they address some solutions without using Windows or Outlook.
