You can't sync your website logins from your Mac. You have to enter the logins at least once on the iPhone.
You can use Safari's autofill so Safari remembers names and passwords of websites you visit and automatically fills in the information when you revisit the website (unless the website prohibits autofill entry, like some banking sites). See page 85 of iPhone iOS4 User Guide for instructions.
Your iPhone's Keychain is included in the backup (this includes email account passwords, Wi-Fi passwords, and passwords you enter into websites and some other applications. The keychain can only be restored from backup to the same iPhone or iPod touch. If you are restoring to a new device, you will need to fill in these passwords again.) http://support.apple.com/kb/HT176627" iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPad+3G, iPhone 4, 6 iPods
