You can not pay for H1B as per law; also coming to USA and searching for a project is also illegal as per law. Only thing you could do is look (your employer not you) for project and earn $$$ to cover your expenses.

Sorry for your situation, as far as I know not much you can do other than threaten your employer to return your money otherwise you will file a case with USCIS that he collected money from you to file H1B visa without a proper project in hand.

You will be lucky if you have got a hard evidence (money transfer receipts, conversations/emails; and discussions why he is not brining you to USA). All these evidences would give him a big headache for your employer, to avoid he may pay you back.

just one cent...
