-ly turns an adjective (or a participle being used like an adjective) into an adverb.
Adjectives modify nouns, adverbs modify verbs (or adjectives or other adverbs).
The effect is that this turns a word that says "what kind of X is X" into a word that says "how is X done".
she went out disappointed
This means she was disappointed (disappointed complements she - "went out" is being used copularly like be, seem, become, etc.).
she went out disappointedly
This means she went out in a disappointed way (disappointedly complements the verb phrase "went out" - explaining how she went out).
Now, you probably won't go out in a disappointed manner if you aren't disappointed, so both these expressions do lead to the same conclusion, but in a different way.
