What way did you log in? I think there's a few ways and some won't show the contacts. If I go to Live.com, sign in, then hover over the hotmail link at the top and then click on contacts it lists all mine.
If it doesn't for you it must have never synced, you can choose how it syncs when you set it up on the phone and if you weren't using email you might have selected 'never'.
I know you said the email settings screen just kicks you out, does that mean when you go to 'settings' then 'email & accounts' it kicks you straight back out, or can you see the Windows Live entry there. If you can just press and hold on that and a menu will pop down that lets you sync.
Another way is by going to your people hub, clicking the ... at the bottom and going to settings, then scroll to the bottom and again press and hold on Windows Live to bring up the sync option.
