Is there any way for Thunderbird (using linux) to import my email address book from an exchange server? I've tried looking it up but every solution I've found requires me to click through settings or buttons that don't seem to exist.

I don't believe so. When I initially began using Thunderbird (Using Zorin), there was some add on installed by default (I don't know which one) which did something with exchange apparently... But it turned out to be some 3 month trial crap and thunderbird just stopped being able to send/receive email altogether. So I got rid of Zorin and put my trusty Mint on my computer and Thunderbird sends and receives email no problem.

But does thunderbird not have the ability to import a simple address book without the use of an add on?

Accessing Exchange mail accounts requires the ExQuilla or Owl add-on. But if you just want to import an address book, not sync. it in TB, TB can import csv, vcf and other formats: Tools/Import...Address Books... choose the format.... select the file. With csv, it's often best to edit it in a spreadsheet to make it compatible with the TB format.
