SharePoint calendars doesn't replace the outlook calendars. It's for a different use, especially for Sharing a calendar among several users just with the browser.

There are some advantages for the SharePoint, because the calendar is based on a SharePoint list, you can enjoy from all the list capabilities such as the ability to add fields, views, manage permissions, exposure in SharePoint search results, ranking and more.
