So, I am really confused. Am I missing something? Can someone put me on some useful track?
You might take a look at Long & Freese's book:

They point out, in both chapters 4 and 5, that the logit and ologit models can be motivated in at least 2 ways: as a latent-variable model or as a nonlinear probability model. Perhaps the confusion stems from being used to seeing it motivated one way rather than the other.

My own feeble attempt to explain it can be found at
