I'm not certain this will work, but you could try. cd to the folder where sh.3proxy is located, and ./sh.3proxy instead of sh.3proxy. The ./ tells sh to look in the pwd for the file sh.3proxy.
I'm just guessing here. Apologies if I offend with my ignorance.

with sh (shell) you can only run shell scripts. executables are started with /path/to/executable/3proxy. or you swith to the directory containing the executable and type

did you only 'make' or did you also run 'make install' ? make install should place the files in PATH directories so you could just type 3proxy
