I assume you're entering in the associated data incorrectly. Login to your hotmail account via the Safari browser on the same iPhone. If you're able to login via Safari then you should be able to go to the Mail settings, select to add a new account, choose the Outlook.com option and then enter your Hotmail credentials.
