It could be that it's asking for credentials (username/password).
These were probably already cached when you ran it from the command
line, but when the hook script is being run it's happening as a
different user so it doesn't have that information cached. You may
need to supply it using the --username and --password arguments. You
should also use the --non-interactive argument since a hook script
cannot be interactive with the svn command. You should write the
error output of svn update to a file so that you can examine its
contents and see what's actually going wrong. Like (I think this
works on Windows too):

svn update 2 > C:\[someplacethisusercanwrite]\svn.error.log
