I haven't used that software, so these are only suggestions.
The Tex Live documentation site <http://www.tug.org/texlive/doc.html>
has a link titled, "Binaries for i386-cygwin". You apparently
installed the win32 version, but maybe that one would be better.
Try these under bash:
Carefully look to insure the path is correct.
If the 'type' command can't find it, it's a different kind of problem
than not being able to execute.
chmod +x xelatax
Maybe bash doesn't recognize it as an executable.
