Not sure I understand the question, but if you have a layer containing a shape and nothing else, and you want to create a mask just use Select/LoadSelection. Is that what you're after, or have I misunderstood what you're trying to do?

Thanks Adrian, I am trying to find an easy and rapid method to create a layer mask that would allow me to correct only the overexposed zone of a pic. I don't want to use the pencil, brush and other tools to create the mask because it is too much time consuming.

This is the way I proceed:

- Create a selection of the zone to correct on the background.

- In Layer menu, click on new adjustement layer. It will create an adjustement layer just for the selection.

PS: It might be a good idea to save the selection in case you'll need it again later, creating a new adjustement layer for a selected zone will de-select the zone.

Hope it help.

Voici la maniere dont je procede:

- Je cree une selection de la zone a corrigee sur le calque de fond.

- Dans le menu calque, je clique sur Nouveau Calque de Reglage. Ceci ajoutera un calque de reglage juste pour la selection.

PS: C'est peut-etre une bonne idee de memoriser la selection de la zone dans le cas ou vous en aurez encore besoin plus tard. Creer un nouveau calque de reglage a partir d'une zone selectionnee a pour effet de de-selectionner la dites zone.

J'espere que cela vous aidera.

Oh, right - I'd use Select/ColorRange - click on the brightest area of the overexposed part and either use Add or change the fuzziness :-)
