I'm not sure this even matters or not, but does it matter where to put the refrigerator electrical outlet box in relation to the ice maker's water outlet box?

Since you appear to be installing a new unit, are there not installation instructions with relevant tips?

Generally, you should be installing the supply outlets relative to the location of the connections on the unit, considering convenience, of course.
Personally, I would take care to locate the water outlet below the electrical outlet, not have them vertically in-line, and maintain at least 12" between the two.
