You can only draw paths with the Pen Tool, Pencil or Vector Brush tools. The Node tool is just for editing nodes.
In Affinity Photo yes, you can convert a path to a selection pressing the Selection button on the context toolbar (on the left side) for the Pen tool. In Affinity Designer this command is not available.

But … there is a nifty workaround in Designer (see my video) … ;)
(a.) Draw your path.
(b.) Don’t apply a stroke, but a fill.
(c.) Command + Click on the path thumbnail in the layers list.
(d.) Voilà, you have created a selection from your shape.
Cheers, Alex :)
