You didn't show what stage the sync failed, but my assumption is that it will be that you have incorrect credentials for your sync account. If you go to Central Admin -> Manage Service Application -> UPSA and edit your sync connection with the correct username/password.

no i don't think there is a codeless solution to this.. you most likely will have to do this via custom code. You could create an console application which checks for files in the local folder, and if they do upload it to SharePoint and then set this application as Windows Scheduled Task with an Interval of 1min. Another option would be implementing it ...

In general synchronizations like this is not a good idea? There's a whole lot of things that must be considered - not just the data in the lists. What about permissions and possibly custom code?

You can't. They have to be overlayed individually through Outlook, and overlayed in Outlook. SharePoint overlay just brings them together for viewing purposes, and so does Outlook.
