Type > Create Outlines only works on type. You have 2 options:

1. Use Illustrator's Live Trace feature with a very tight path fitting tolerance.

2. Take it back to Photoshop, make a selection equal to your desired path. Use the Paths panel to convert it to a path, then choose Export Paths to Illustrator.
