I can't close any MS office program with alt+f4, or any other method (right click menu, middle click on cairo-dock icons, Compiz scale addon, etc) except using the X button within the app or going through the menus. 

What version of Wine and what version of Office?

Closing with alt+f4 and selecting close from the taskbar icon both work for me with Office 2003 and 2007 in Wine 1.3.6. If you're using an older version of Wine, try upgrading. You should also disable Compiz; it's known to conflict with Wine.
