You can't just bind a mouse event to dired-find-file; you need a function
that  finds out where the mouse clicked.
I have just cut and pasted something from my .emacs. I hope I didn't forget
anything (actually I myself bind mouse-2 and then I have
mouse-1-click-follows-link set)

(defun dired-mouse-find-file (event)
  "In Dired, visit the file or directory name you click on."
  (interactive "e")
  (let (window pos file)
      (setq window (posn-window (event-end event))
            pos (posn-point (event-end event)))
      (if (not (windowp window))
          (error "No file chosen"))
      (set-buffer (window-buffer window))
      (goto-char pos)
      (setq file (dired-get-file-for-visit)))
    (if (file-directory-p file)
        (or (and (cdr dired-subdir-alist)
                 (dired-goto-subdir file))
              (select-window window)
              (dired file)))
      (select-window window)
      (find-file (file-name-sans-versions file t)))))

(defun set-my-dired-keys-hook ()
  "My favorite dired keys."
  (local-set-key [mouse-1] 'dired-mouse-find-file)
; other keybindings if desired

(add-hook 'dired-mode-hook 'set-my-dired-keys-hook)
