I am trying to set up a filter that will forward all outgoing email from one account to another. Normally I would do this on the sender's computer, but he is several states away and therefore I need to set it up on the server level. I have read where this can be done my modifying the Exim config files, but I can't seem to locate those for my domain. Please help.

The default location that cPanel places Exim files are within /etc/exim.conf. You will, however, need root access if you do not already have it to exit any system configuration files. Be sure to be careful with the exim configuration when modifying it as you could completely break Exim if changed inforrectly.
