First, did you verify that your Emacs is a 32-bit build?  What is the
value of system-configuration?

If that indeed indicates a 32-bit build, you have 2 alternatives:

  . install a 64-bit build of Emacs (this is the preferred solution,
    and will serve you better down the road)

  . continue using the 32-bit build, but make a batch file that will
    call OpenSSH, then put that batch file somewhere on PATH.  The
    batch file should have the same base name as the OpenSSH program
    you are invoking, probably (this assumes the corresponding
    Lisp program calls "ssh", not "ssh.exe")
