The tutorial you're following appears to be outdated. From the Data Loader Guide, the switch used to generate a keyfile is -k:

Generate a key: -k [path to key file]
Generates a key file, and saves it in %userprofile%\.dataloader\dataLoader.key if the path is not specified. Store this file with care as you use it for encryption and decryption.
