The PPTP protocol has two components.  The first is the control channel on 1723/tcp, which you have forwarded.  The second is the actual VPN payload which is on GRE (IP protocol number 47) and also needs to be forwarded.  Once you forward GRE to the PPTP server, your client should be able to connect successfully.
