There are multiple ways.  You could have the line:
-*- outline -*-
on the first line of the file, or use a "Local Variables" section
at the end of the file.  See the section "File Variables" in the
Emacs manual, (Info-goto-node "(emacs)File Variables"), for more
detailed information.

If you want all files with an extension .txt to open in outline
mode, you can customise the variable `auto-mode-alist', e.g.

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.txt$" . outline-mode))
