Are you sure contacts are actually missing? I wonder if outlook is counting multiple numbers for 1 contact as 2 or 3, and icloud counts it as 1.

What does it matter then if none are actually missing? It is probably doing what I said. Outlook is counting multiple numbers tied to the same contact as multiple contacts, not just one.

for example:
outlook- john smith (3 contacts)
xxx-xxx-xxxx
xxx-xxx-xxxx
xxx-xxx-xxxx

icloud - john smith (1 contact)
xxx-xxx-xxxx
xxx-xxx-xxxx
xxx-xxx-xxxx
