PWM DC Motor Control Using Timer A of the MSP430
I guess that LP LDO is not able to supply enough power for motor. Maybe 5V / 500 mA from USB will be enough, but to be completely sure It is better to connect motor to separate (not PC related) supply.

your setup should work fine as far as I can tell. The datasheet from ST on page 6 says that it should be fine even with 2.4V input on the "data pin", only the output current will be lower, but it is still 200mA at 2.4V, more than enough for your led.
Maybe you could test it without the launchpad first by just applying 3.3V or 5V to the input pin on the ULN2003. If this doesn't work, I would say, your LED or the ULN2003 is damaged. Or use a multimeter to check

Presuming the diagram you attache is correct, you have the LED connected to ground. As the ULN2003 switches the other lead to ground, the LE will not light. You need the anode to f the LED attached to the 3V rail, and a current limit resistor in series with it (maybe 100ohms)
Again, the outputs switch to ground, not positive supply.
