-outsum- is a user-written command available from SSC. 

No such options are documented in the help, nor are there any such

Your best question may be to clone the program, add a -format(str)-
option and then change lines like these 

      replace stats=string(round(`mean',0.0001)) in 1
      replace stats="("+string(round(`sd',0.0001))+")" in 2
      if "`noparen'"~="" {
        replace stats=string(round(`sd',0.0001)) in 2
      if "`bracket'"~="" {
        replace stats="["+string(round(`sd',0.0001))+"]" in 2

so that they look more like this 

      replace stats=string(`mean', "`format'")) in 1

Alternatively, writing your own program using -file- would be

I am using the outsum command to create various descriptive tables. 
The command is extremely useful.  However, I can't seem to figure out 
how to adjust the decimal places for the means and standard 
deviations.  I know with outreg there are options such as bdec and 
tdec to do this.  Is there something similar for outsum?
