I just checked my system auto-mode-alist. It doesn't have an entry for
slime-mode, but it does have one for lisp-mode associated with the .ml

If yours is associated with slime-mode, then I would suspect it is
being added by some initialisation code that sets up slime. finding
where this code is depends on your distribution. Under Debian, it is
in /etc/emacs/site-lisp.d

If you only have the association between .ml and lisp-mode, you need
to either find the bit of code which adds the entry to the association
list and remove it (assuming its a bit of setup code and not part of
the core emacs code). 

The other thing you could try doing is re-setting the variable in your
.emacs file. alternatively, install one of the ML modes and see if
that association overrides the lisp one. One final possible solution
is to use either a mode line at the top of your file or file variables
at the bottom to force the mode you want.
