I think you need to read up a little on the differences between photoshop and illustrator. Photoshop uses pixels and illustrator uses vectors (which make up paths). If you've ever used the pen or shape tools inside photoshop you'll have worked with paths, but everything else is different.

Opening a jpg in illustrator will just treat it as an imported picture. To convert it to paths (As this tutorial needs), you can either trace with the pen tool, or possibly (depending on how complex it is) use the 'Live trace' feature.

Search around for 'tracing a logo in illustrator' and you should find a fair few video tutorials to walk you through the process.
