Either Q or E, depending on the situation.

Q for jungle
E for for most melee lanes but if you're losing or against an abusive range, max Q

Depends who you're fighting against and where you're going. Generally you max Q when you're against a ranged harass top or you're jungling, and E if you're against a melee top.

Q top vs ranged, squishy or abusive (anyone that counters him, you could consider getting q for farm)
E For melee/less squishy people

If I'm doing well, I put two points in Q and then max E in the jungle for the burst damage in ganks/ hunting the enemy jungler.

I max Q for the AoE in the jungle, and E in the lane for the awesome nuking.

Q: Any lane that is going to be close or hard fought

E: Anything you can stomp. Flat true damage makes you stomp stomp lanes harder.

Olaf is actually one of the most versatile lanes in the game in that he can max any one of his skills first.

Q when you want ranged poke and good chasing power.
W when you are most concerned with surviving a superior laning presence.
E when you want good zoning potential against a limited melee.

Q might be a good choice against someone like zed, for example.
W is probably your best bet against a bully such as Elise or Yorick.
E is awesome against characters such as Irelia.
