The key is not the word count of each text item per se, which several outliners may have (or one can simply use a tool like TextTally to get it), but its aggregation along the hierarchy. This, as far as I know, is quite a rare feature, found mostly in writers’ software and not in general purpose outliners.

In the former kind, I believe that Storybox has it http://www.storyboxsoftware.com/
