Have you set the autofocus to accessory lens type?

If so, something's wrong with camera or lens.

If not... read on...

In the default mode, the camera uses external sensors to set a rough focus, then a sensor behind the lens to fine-tune. With the tele lens, the exterior rough focus will be way off.

In the accessory mode for autofocus, the camera uses the behind-the-lens (TTL or through the lens) sensor alone.

Push Menu, then use the joystick to get to the AF control, press the joystick in, then down to ACCESSORY LENS AF, then press the joystick in again.

Push menu again and hopefully, there you are...

In addition to what Dave said, you might want to be sure that the digital zoom is not active - in Setup, change "Advanced Digital Zoom" to None.And for distant shots, try Landscape mode.

Another thing, in my camera (7440), when using the telephoto accessory lens full zoom (or near full) is required to avoid vignetting but focus seems OK at any setting.
