You are correct. All wheel drive Subaru can not be dolly towed however, IF you check the 2014 tow guide the manual, 4 cylinder Outback can be towed 4 down. I think this was the last year for manual shift for the outback. Subaru went to the CVT transmission which can not be towed.
However, I did get the dealer to confirm in writing as a condition of sale.
My Outback has approx 8k towed miles with out issue and I expect many more.
