Il faut is an impersonal expression, so when talking about making one's bed in general, you need son. If you were telling a specific person to make their bed, you'd use ton or votre.
Il faut faire son lit. = You (as in everyone/people) must make his (one's) bed.
Il faut faire ton lit. = You (specifically) must make your bed.
