Here's what I have in my dissertation:

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{LIST OF TABLES}

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{LIST OF FIGURES}

I think the \cleardoublepage is what does the trick.  IIRC the 
\phantomsection is for the benefit of hyperref.  By clearing the page 
before adding the entry to the TOC, the entry is on the correct page.  
I'm hypothesizing that the list of tables and list of figures start 
with a \cleardoublepage themselves, but since the pages have already 
been cleared that is effectively a no-op.

Hope I'm being clear; it's late.
