Inside the Battle of Hoth

Wired: "How did the Galactic Empire ever cement its hold on the Star Wars Universe? The war machine built by Emperor Palpatine and run by Darth Vader is a spectacularly bad fighting force, as evidenced by all of the pieces of Death Star littering space. But of all the Empire’s failures, none is a more spectacular military fiasco than the Battle of Hoth at the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back." (Culture)

Vader could have very well felt the presence of Luke on hoth through the force. That would explain his desire to lead an attack on the surface.
