If you look at this link you'll see that it's part of Namespace: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word, which is specific to Word.

So, in Outlook you first need to get access to the Word Editor; so:

Set objDoc = Application.ActiveInspector.WordEditor 
Set objSel = objDoc.Windows(1).Selection 
objSel.TypeText Text:="Thank you for the quote."
