I do it over VPN-over-dial-up, but never tried direct dial-up before. It's all about the DNS... try setting the DNS servers entries on the client to the IP addresses of your corporate DNS servers, and then have him hit the dial-up connection. And make sure there aren't any protocol blocking agents (i.e., firewalls) in the way...

One of my users is in Spain and somehow his laptop is no longer on the domain. I've tried initiating a direct dial-up networking connection to a remote access server on my domain and then going through the join domain wizard without success. Any ideas?
