Are you trying to run the dedicated server on the same machine as your trying to play the game on? If so that won't work (from what I know).
I does, you just need to make sure that you use the local IP address for the machine if it is attached on a LAN. I do this all the time, and I've had no problems.

Try using the "connect" command. Enable the developer's console via keyboard options, advanced. Then hit the "~" key (to the left of the 1 key) type "connect xxx.xx.xxx.xx" without quotes and the "x"s are the ip to your server.
The easiest way to do this is, once you start L4D, open the console and type sv_cheats 1. This will NOT count against any achivements! Type into the console ms_force_dedicated_server "Server IP:Port". Then, YOU create the lobby.
