I fail to see where it is that you are assigning the the keyfield abd valuefield to the DropDown control itself. Perhaps it is the problem.
Also, have you checked that:
lookup.getLookupListItemGroup(this.KeyField, this.ValueField)
really does return the values you expect?

Can you show the return value of:
lookup.getLookupListItemGroup(this.KeyField, this.ValueField)
what type are the objects and what is their value.
