You do know that you need to run xelatex on the file at least three times? The first time it picks up information on thee Chapters and Sections, etc., and puts it in the aux file. The second run inserts a preliminary TOC as well as picking up the changed pages by inserting the TOC. The third time includes any changed page numbers in the TOC that may have occurred by inserting the TOC. Depending upon what else you are doing you may even have to run xelatex even more times.

Good Luck,
