The current version of the Photos app doesn't display photos from services in the Tile. Can you confirm that you have photos in your Pictures library?

You also need to open the app first in order for the tile to be updated so make sure you have run the app after installing it to give the Tile a chance to get populated.

You can also set any photo you want as your app tile from the Photos app if you prefer, just open the photo you want on full screen, bring up the app bar and use Set as app tile.

Hope that helps but definitely let us know if you're still having problems.
