Are you sure you have installed latest aspell version beeing 0.60 and not 
0.33? The big difference is that from version 0.50 on aspell doesn't need 
pspell any more. Further are you sure you have installed the dictionaries for 
<= 0.33 and not by accident one for >= 0.50. 

Another thing is for aspell afaik there exists only a port for 0.5X versions. 
The one for 0.6X versions is not yet finished if i didn't miss anything. But 
Ask Gary Setter on devel mailing list for more.

For php afaik there exists only a binding for pspell based <= 0.33 verisons.
Thus you have to get the proper version from the old aspell pspell link on

If the old versions of aspell ( <= 0.33 ) do not solve your problem than i'd 
sugest that you rather ask the php guys doing the aspell binding for help.
Before you could test if the same error occurs if you open a DOS box and use 
aspell to check a little test file you prepared.

Have you ever check aspell config file ususally suite in the aspell config 
dir ?
