If you're trying to use the CLI client, plain plink.exe (from the
PuTTY installation) probably is a better choice.
Have you tried to change the "ssh=" line in your Subversion
configuration file (%APPDATA%\Subversion\config) to something like:

ssh=c:/path/to/plink.exe -i c:/path/to/your/key.ppk

That should go in the "[tunnels]" section of the file.
