An easy way would be to get Publicon. WRI did the work on adding the 
bibliographic database and adding palettes for endnote reference entry. As 
the notebook files saved by Publicon are generally Mathematica compatible 
the endnote style should come thru.

At some point some Publicon functionalities maybe in Mathematica

Another possibility is to use yet another tool as you reference manager.

http://www.zotero.org/

Then writing your own palette that can insert endnotes to a current 
notebook, by accessing the SQLite database that zotero installs in your 
FireFox directory.

Zotero to manage your references, DataBaseLink to connect to SQLite, and 
select your references to a palette and some programming to add to current 
notebook.

Zotero can import EndNote databases.

There are so many bibliographic db implementation that the wheel gets 
reinvented way too often 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_reference_management_software

Additionaly OpenOffice (Star Office) provides its own bibilographic 
database.

Maybe WRI can centralize the users reference DB thru packlets and hosting 
users reference DB. A start to online collaboration tools.
