It seems to me, that you didn't configure Web Apps for SharePoint 2013. This post may help you to configure it.

Are you sure your Office 365 site is on Sharepoint 2013 and not 2010?
Mine Office 365, for example, is on Sharepoint 2010 Online.

If it is on 2010 then you cannot hope that it can be aware about Office 2013 components and products...

  • The site is on SharePoint 2010 Online - I have info that "...can't find application consistent with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation" Nov 15, 2012 at 8:35
