This is because you're doing a normal TCP connection.

You don't do the same thing here. With the socket you now have open,
you need to use SOCKS5 (RFC1928, which can be found at
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1928.txt for reference) to request a
connection from the streamhost to that SHA1'd string, as if you were
connecting to a SOCKS5 proxy for general Internet use.
A streamhost is basically pretending to be a SOCKS5 proxy server, so
once you've connected you need to do the SOCKS5 negotiation and then
issue the SOCKS5 'CONNECT' command -- the command in the SOCKS5
protocol which requests a connection to a destination site -- to the
streamhost. /Not/ a normal TCP connect() call, a SOCKS5 command packet
with the SHA1'd host as the destination field.
Does that help?
