Thanks Michael. FYI I think I managed to get it to work earlier this morning with:

(add-to-list 'tramp-remote-path "/path/to/git/on/remote/machine")
(add-to-list 'tramp-remote-path 'tramp-own-remote-path)

Maybe you should flush Tramp caches explicitly. Execute "M-x
tramp-cleanup-all-connections" and try then "M-! which git". Another
command to check is "M-! echo $PATH".

I suspect that the directory, where git is located, is added to the
$PATH environment in your remote ~/.profile. In this case, I recommend
to to use

(push 'tramp-own-remote-path tramp-remote-path)
