It sounds like you're /etc/init.d/syslog-ng is not the one distributed
with syslog-ng. Mine has these headers:

# head -8 /etc/init.d/syslog-ng 
# syslog-ng     This starts and stops syslog-ng
# chkconfig:    2345 12 88
# description:  syslog-ng is an alternative system logger
# processname:  syslog-ng
# pidfile:      /var/run/syslog-ng.pid

but I think only the chkconfig-line is necessary for chkconfig to
make it support chkconfig. So try adding that to your init-script.
