What OS do you have? You should be able to sign out of Office and then sign in with your hotmail account.

Screenshot of my account and the option to either sign out or switch account attached.

This can be done by clicking File in the top left corner and then click the account option or you can click the account in the top right hand corner and then click switch account.

There was a GPO setting blocking the sign out, place the user account into a different OU and all was ok
