I think in one of the iOS releases Microsoft allowed Apple to program in setting up Hotmail accounts as Exchange ActiveSync. However, the same capability has not been extended to Mac OS. Until such time as Microsoft changes their mind, you are limited to configuring Hotmail as a POP account in OS X's, hence the lack of true syncing.
