You cannot change key usages for existing certificates. Key usage should be set on certificate generation stage. Please consider using the following code (you did not mention the edition you are using, so using Delphi notation):
Cert.Extensions.Included := [ceKeyUsage]
Cert.Extensions.KeyUsage := [kuKeyEncipherment, kuKeyAgreement];

You can also use ExtendedKeyUsage extension, which allows to specify custom certificate usages.
