I'm trying to create a circular logo type with the ellipse tool but there is no path layer available on the option bar. I'm using Photoshop CC and I cannot find a resolution anywhere.

Are you using the elliptical selection tool by mistake?
You should be using the elliptical shape tool, which has a path option in the options bar (on the left side).

You're using the selection/Marquee tools by mistake.

Look further down for the shape tools (default shortcut is U).
