I'm writing a cel-shading effect in HLSL and Direct3D 11, and I need to be able to flip the culling mode on the outline pass of the effect. I know you do this in XNA by setting CullMode to CW or CCW inside the pass definition, but is that how you do it in D3D11/SlimDX?

You can do that by creating rasterizer state and setting it active in context. See D3D11_RASTERIZER_DESC and SlimDX.Direct3D11.RasterizerStateDescription.IsFrontCounterclockwise.

And if you use Effect11 framework, then you can do that directly in fx file like this:

// define your rasterizer state
RasterizerState MyCull {
    FrontCounterClockwise = TRUE; // or FALSE
};

// in some effect pass use MyCull state for Rasterizer State
SetRasterizerState( MyCull );
