I have black and white image as a mask. I want to apply the Outer Glow style on it. How do I tell AE to treat the white part as a mask and to see only the glow?

You don't. You apply the glow to a precomp, and it will appear in the areas of transparency.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking. You might look into Track Mattes.
