That doesn't really have anything to do with samba, but... check 
/etc/ssh/sshd_config and make sure PubKeyAuthentication is enabled.  Also 
check your ~/.ssh/config and /etc/ssh/ssh_config and make sure there is 
nothing causing key auth to be disabled, or for it to be using a different 
key file than you expect.

Beyond that, try using ssh -v and possibly sshd -v and check for error 
messages.  Make sure it is using the key file you expect, and there are no 
permissions errors (on client or server).
