Well, if you look on the device, do you have any google apps installed? gmail, google+, google Play, etc?
If not, you will need to download and install the google apps. Cyanogen doesn't include any of the Google Apps (by request from Google). You must install them separately. Here is the file to download:
Goo.im Downloads - Downloading gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip
You should have an app called "Rom Manager" installed. Open that. There should be an option to 'boot to recovery". Once booted to recovery mode, you need to choose "install zip from SDCARD". Then navigate to the gapps file you downloaded and choose YES to install. After install is complete, navigate to "reboot". Your Touchpad should now have all the google apps installed once you restart.
Once Google play is installed and you sign into the google account, you will be able to download and install other apps from the Play Store.
