What makes a clicking sound in a 2004 subaru outback when it is first started?

You would need to provide more information. Does the click happen with key on and engine not started? Does the clicking sound come from the engine compartment? Does the click abruptly stop in a specific amount of time? Does it matter if the engine is cold or will it also click after the engine has stopped for just a few minutes like you would find when shopping or refueling? Does wet weather make a difference?

Why would engine sound like a diesel at operating temp?

An engine might sound like a diesel at operating temperature if the engine was a diesel or if there was an issue with the manifold. Sometimes gases escaping the manifold cover could cause the engine to sound different.
