Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In the latest version of the Windows Firewall, included for example in Windows Server 2008 R2, you can block incoming connections and apply this rule only for a set of users (Users Tab in the rule properties).

Why is this not possible for outbound connection rules and how can it be achieved? I need a software solution that blocks all internet access for specific users and for others not and I hope to realize this with the windows firewall.

This just isn't a feature that's available. If you want to do something like this, you might look at using Microsoft TMG as an outbound proxy. It can do user/group based access to Internet resources.
