Burj Khalifa is taller than Uluru.

Burj Khalifa stands 828 metres tall.

Uluru is 348 metres above the surrounding land, and so is much shorter.

It is worth noting that the top of Uluru is over 860 metre above sea level, so it has a higher elevation than Burj Khalifa. Height above sea level is, however, not the criterion for tallness, or we would have to consider a storage hut near the top of Mt Everest as the world's tallest building.
