With the SharePoint 2013 tools they removed the Site Definition project template, but added Site Definition as a project item.

So you have to create an empty SharePoint 2013 Project and the add a new item of type Site Definition


I am not sure what steps you followed, please look at this MSDN instruction and check if you are doing it right.
