Could be several things.

Is the hook script itself being executed? Is its executable bit set
and named correctly? If you write to a log file from within the hook
script (specifying the absolute path to the log file), does the log
file get written to?

Are you specifying the absolute path to the commit-email.pl script?
Relative paths do not work in hook scripts (on non-Windows systems)
because the PATH variable is empty when the hooks run.
