Should there be?  (My assumption/guess would be no.)

Why would it only be associated with a Roku device/TV? I also don't see the "Live TV" selection on my Samsung TV.

The Roku channel is only one of many channels available on a Roku device.  And a Roku TV contains both a Roku device, and an Over The Air tuner.

That doesn't answer my question. Why don't I have access to the Roku Channel Guide when viewing the Roku Channel in a browser. Select the following link to see what I am expecting to have access to.

I've had the same problem.  I can't find the Live TV Channel Guide on The Roku Channel using a Fire TV or PC.  The Roku Channel is my first experience with any Roku product and simply locating the guide has been a huge PIA. Is this what I can expect from Roku?

Most likely it is a license restriction that limits Live TV to the app only. Possibly because it's too easy to 'steal' video from a regular computer.

"When you launch The Roku Channel, a new “Live TV” tile will appear on the home screen. Simply click on the tile to access the guide."

To me this reads as though it's only available on a Roku device.  No mention of the Live TV guide and any other method of accessing The Roku Channel is ever given.
