You cannot use your laptop's ethernet connection with your handset. When you set up your mobile as a wifi hotspot it means that other devices can connect to your phone over wifi and use YOUR PHONE's cellular data connection for internet browsing, not the other way around.
Actually the reason why you are not seeing it (most likely) is that you created an ad-hoc hotspot. this is not supported by Windows Phone and this type os connections is in general considered to be less secure and even illegal in some regions..
If you set up a regular WiFi hotspot on your laptop you will be able to connect your phone just fine.
