M-x only allows you to run interactive commands, which fset is not.

If you want to run an arbitrary lisp expression (very useful for
giving variables buffer-local values), you can use M-x eval-expression
(bound to M-: on my emacs), then you can type in your s-expression in
the minibuffer:
   (setq c-basic-offset 3)

(or you could just type it in the buffer and C-x-e, as others have
mentioned)
