Well, you are pointing -L to the wrong path (it's missing the architecture - in your case x64), so it's no wonder. What you really want is R --arch x64 CMD SHLIB

You are compiling 32-bit and you don't have the tools installed. If you meant to use 64-bit you want to use R --arch x64 CMD SHLIB instead.
