As you said, short of the Olaf player being greedy or green, he'll win the lane. The best I can hope for it to avoid dying, defend the tower and farm safely. Minimize poking, it just makes the Viking angrier.
It's one of those match ups where I'll inform my jungler/middle early that Olaf will give me a hard time and I'll need some love around level 5 and up... sometimes, regardless of skill, certain match ups will work against you, and you need your team to help bear the load. Hence the critical nature of drafting and counter picking.
If your team doesn't help, just ignore their whining when he's avalanching through your AP AND AD carries without breaking a sweat.
