You are getting the error because the version of ssh you are using
expects a certain method of faking Unix pttys (I could take a wild
guess here and say that you're using a Cygwin port of ssh).

You could try using an alternative ssh client. plink (the putty
command-line client) seems like it could work if you can get comint
to recognize the passphrase prompt.

Cygwin ftp? Same problem perhaps.

Cygwin version? You would probably get the ptty emulation that Cygwin
expects if you used the Cygwin port of Emacs as well.
