Settings | Configure Kontact | Contacts

After arriving at that location, check the only box that you will find:
"Enable Contacts"

This is on Kontact 1.4.4 and KDE 4.2.4

As an experiment, I unchecked the "Enable Contacts" box and clicked 
"OK"  The result was that my "Contacts" icon disappeared from the left 
panel.  I checked the box again and clicked "OK" and it came back...
