It's right there: on Insert → Table of Contents and Index → Table of Contents, Index or Bibliography, click the Index or Table of Contents tab and under Type select Table of contents.

It's everything on the help files: Creating a Table of Contents - LibreOffice Help

Note that the index get its information from the outline defined on Tools → Outline numbering. If you used the paragraph styles Heading 1, Heading 2, etc. to define your chapters/sections... everything should work out of the box.

You have an older version of LibreOffice. Select Indexes and Tables from the above screenshot, then in the dialog box you can select Alphabetical Index or Table of Contents.
