The internal TLS code has somewhat limited support for different formats
for certificates and especially private keys. I would guess that the
problem here was in the private key not being in support format. Which
format did you use for the private key? You will likely need to convert
it at least to use DER encoding and even that may not be enough
depending on how the key was generated.

One thing to note about the internal TLS implementation is that it is
still experimental and lacks some important functionality and testing.
Furthermore, I would highly recommend using the latest available code
for it (which, in this case, means the current git snapshot of the
development branch since there has been a critical bug fix in it since
0.6.0 release).
