The ability to convert outline text into live text will be available through the 'Retype' feature we recently shipped. The released version can identify fonts for now. Soon it will allow you to edit it as well. More details: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/illustrator/using/retype.html

Adobe already does this in Acrobat Pro DC, so...why not build that same feature into Illustrator?
Just tested it in Acrobat, seems to work, the single text box was editable nicely in Acrobat. But then upon saving and re-opening in Illustrator, 2 lines of continuous text became over 30 separate text objects...terrible.
What worked better was to copy the text from Acrobat and paste it into Illustrator...came in as a single text box...very nice. Still would be better if the same functionality could exist within Illustrator. It is like the the Acrobat, Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop teams all work for a separate company when you think about the synergy potentials that go totally untapped.
