Is there an outline program that allows tagging text with different layers?

If you’re talking about stylesheets that allow quick reformatting of headings, etc., then Word, LibreOffice/OpenOffice Writer, Scrivener, Papyrus, Latex (and all the editors based on TEX) come to mind.
I am, however, not aware of any outliner supporting stylesheets (stylesheets are not really necessary - an outliner is a thinking and organizing tool not a formatting tool).

If you’re talking about the ability to add certain portions of your text to the final document, Scrivener’s Compile (for export or printing) feature might be what you’re looking for. I am not sure but I think other “writers’ wordprocessors” such as Whizfolders, Storybook or IdeaMason should have comparable features.
