LaTeX2HTML gets the strings to use with figure numbers from the
 .aux  file produced when you run LaTeX (or pdf-LaTeX) on the
same job, to produce the PDF file.

If your work-flow is such that you remove the .aux  file once
satisfied that the PDF is complete, then it will no longer
be available for LaTeX2HTML to use when making the HTML pages.

Or if you have never checked that your document typesets fine,
and just process it for HTML, then there will be no .aux  file,
and hyperlinking of cross-references to Figures just cannot work.

If either of these possible causes applies to your situation, 
perhaps only partially, then hopefully you have your answer.
Otherwise, please provide more information about how you work.
This should include a web address where the results of your 
processing can be accessed via the internet.
Best is to use  -debug  as an option to LaTeX2HTML, so that
all of the intermediate files are retained and should also be
accessible within the same directory tree.
