I think you need a bit of programming here. I have two solutions.

Solution 1: Add the correlations, column by column, to the estimation
set holding the summary statistics

sysuse auto, clear
local vlist price mpg weight
eststo SUM: estpost sum `vlist'
estpost corr `vlist', matrix
matrix corr = e(b)
foreach var of local vlist {
	matrix tmp = corr[1...,"`var':"]
	matrix coleq tmp = ":"
	estadd matrix `var' = tmp: SUM
estout SUM, cell("mean sd price mpg weight")

Solution 2: Make one big vector containing the correlations and
summary statistics and use equation names to define the columns

sysuse auto, clear
local vlist price mpg weight
estpost corr `vlist', matrix
matrix b = e(b)
estpost sum `vlist'
foreach stat in mean sd {
	matrix tmp = e(`stat')
	matrix coleq tmp = `stat'
	matrix b = b, tmp
ereturn post b
estout ., unstack

Type, e.g.

estout ., order(mean: sd:) unstack

to change the order.
