First question you need to answer is why you bought mesh-network radios for point-to-point use, instead of point-to-point radios for point-to-point use.

No, you can't use that tutorial. That is for series 2.5 devices. Using X-CTU, read the modem configuration. Then change PAN ID, MY and DL. Set PAN ID to the same value on both XBees. Set MY on one to some value other than 0. Set DL to a different value, other than 0. On the other XBee, use the same values, but in opposite fields. MY on one should be DL on the other.

That is all that you need to set.

Which XBee shields did you get?

That will probably work better WITH a module attached. There are jumpers on that shield that can be moved to allow the programming of the Arduino will the shield still attached, and then moved to connect the XBee to the serial port pins.
