Any chance the files were installed in /usr/local/bin?
I reported a bug with the chef-server::rubygems-install recipe under Precise last week that was leaving me in the same state (albeit with Chef Server 10.12.0):

The environment was a stock Precise setup without any changes. I just used chef-solo to do a server install and everything but the server actually installed. I’ve since backed out 10.14 and just used 10.12 so I don’t have much information to give you

If I search the system for chef-server after doing a chef-solo install all I get is a bunch of broken links to the actual binary. If I specify the 10.12.0 version of the gem it installs without any problems.
What’s your ruby environment like? Are you using anything fancy like rvm/rbenv? Do you have rubygems installed from source? Is it installed more than once?
What version of ‘chef-server-api’ is installed? That is where the binary is (chef-server is just a meta-package).
$ gem contents chef-server-api | grep bin
