Its a common confusion don't worry. lol

Outlook.com is the actual email you have, its an email address that ends in outlook.com, live.com, msn.com and Hotmail.com. Its also the website you login to access your emails or other email accounts.

Outlook 2016 is the desktop app that comes with the Office Suite where you can set up those type of emails.
