I am trying to switch from wp8.1 to Android M. I had backup enabled and if I did a factory reset, everything including Wi-Fi passwords would sync with my backup. How do I get Android to pull my WiFi passwords from my Microsoft account? WindowsPhone even offers to share my WiFi settings with my contacts, so why not with me?

Sorry, you don't. Android doesn't sync to Microsoft's sync server. You can see (and copy to clipboard) passwords that are installed on an Android device with FREE WiFi Password Recovery, but I'm afraid you're going to have to do something similar on Windows, then manually connect to each wifi signal and put the password in by hand.

(Or you can use Keepass2Android Password Safe (there's a version for Windows too), with the password file on Dropbox or Drive, so you can keep all your passwords on all your devices in sync at all times. Add one on a laptop and it's on your phone in seconds.
