They are both part of the epic cycle called 'The Returns' - the stories of the people returning from the Trojan War. The Odyssey is the story of Odysseus's return. Orestes relates to the return of Agamemnon.
Since Odysseus was lost for ten years, by the time the events of the Odyssey take place, what happens to Agamemmnon and Orestes (which I won't get into) has already happened, so they are mentioned in the story line as an example to Telemachus.
