Not exactly, never tried it, but if you look at the Word method in the automate.lbs sample library's AutomationCode code class, it has this:
Do lSelectionObj.$find() Returns lFindObj ;; a selection object will change the text when used with a find object
Do lFindObj.$execute('x.x',kTrue,kTrue,kFalse,kFalse,kFalse,kTrue,kTrue,kFalse,lOMNISVersion,2) ;; find and replace version number, 2 means find and replace all occurrences
; reset the formatting on 'Dear' to non-italic, so it contrasts with the following name
That makes it look like the convention is that $find returns a 'find object', which you can configure and $execute.
Maybe Outlook follows this convention. Your snippet doesn't have any $execute() call.
