You're editing the work path, not the type layer. (notice the layer copy, and create work path steps)
You need to make a shape layer, or edit the converted type directly.
click on Load Path as a Selection then fill the selection
i had to make a new layer to get the fill (Command+delete) to work - it looks like it filled marching ants with pixels
i am making a vector logo and need vector, did i miss something?
Instead of going Type > Create work path, go Type > Convert type to Shape. Then the object will remain filled to the bounding work path as you edit the point.
