We have a scenario where we want to consume multiple eLearning outputs in an existing product Online Help created using RoboHelp.

If I copy the output folder to my RH project and refer that in the help topic it works and opens the eLearning output. However, the challenge is that if I have multiple eLearning outputs the project size becomes humongous.

Is there a way where Captivate eLearning outputs can be hosted or stored? Does Adobe have any recommendation?

There's nothing to stop you from hosting the e-learning modules on a public facing web server and then just linking Help topics to the index.html pages that are hosted on the web server.  In fact that would be by far a better solution than including the e-learning modules directly in the help because then you can update the topics at any time without needing to re-issue a new version of your software.
