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
