Do you want to see tasks for selected dates on the Taskpad in Outlook's calendar? Change the view to "Active Tasks for selected dates" then click on a date, holding Shift or Control to select additional dates.
Note that Outlook's default is Due date only, a start date is optional and unless you have a start date set, Tasks due in the future are considered Active until they are dismissed.
