        ''' constructor
        ''' </summary>
        Public Sub New(ByVal id As Integer)
            MyBase.New()
            Me.BackColor = Color.Wheat
            Me.SetStyle(ControlStyles.DoubleBuffer _

                Or ControlStyles.AllPaintingInWmPaint _
                Or ControlStyles.SupportsTransparentBackColor, _
                True)
            Me.TextAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter

            'MF-Circle
            mPilon.Visible = False

                Me.SuspendLayout()

                ShapeContainer1.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(150, 150)
                ShapeContainer1.TabIndex = 0
                ShapeContainer1.TabStop = False
                '

                mPilon.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(44, 37)
                mPilon.Name = "mPilon"
                mPilon.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(41, 34)
                mPilon.Visible = False
                mPilon.FillStyle = Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.FillStyle.Percent75
                '
                'Block

                Me.Height = 18
                Me.Width = 18
                mPilon.Left = Me.Left + 2
                mPilon.Top = Me.Top + 2
                mPilon.Visible = True
                mPilon.Height = Me.Height - 5
                mPilon.Width = Me.Width - 5
                mPilon.CornerRadius = CInt(mPilon.Width / 2.0)

                Me.BackColor = Color.Transparent

            End If

        End Sub


        Public Sub mPilon__MouseHover(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
        Handles mPilon.MouseHover

            Dim tip As String = "Im Hovering over the rounded form"
            mToolTip.AutoPopDelay = 50000

In the initialization code for your form (New, after the controls are created, or form Load event), put:
mToolTip.SetToolTip(mPilon, "I'm Hovering over the rounded form")

Open in new window

You do NOT need to handle the MouseHover event; that's done automatically by the ToolTip control.

A RectangleShape is not a Control; the SetToolTip won't work.
You can show the tooltip on Enter and hide it on Leave:
    Private Sub mPilon_MouseEnter(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles mPilon.MouseEnter
        mToolTip.Show("Im Hovering over the rounded form", Me, MousePosition - Location)
    End Sub

    Private Sub mPilon_MouseLeave(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles mPilon.MouseLeave
        mToolTip.Hide(Me)
    End Sub
