If the server's locale is correctly set up, the problem is related to the codepage and locale settings in putty.

I think you need to select the correct font (don't know which one, however!).
Go to PuTTY configuration for your session, select Window/Appearance on the left and Font Settings/Change on the right. Then select your font. Don't forget to 'Save' your session once to configured the right font.
