I've run into numerous issues using local user accounts and there are several things you should check to determine that you are not having simple network security issues on the user validation.  In general I would advocate using a mixed authentication mode unless that is not possible for administrative reasons.  Some things to check:

Is the ColdFusion Application Server service running under an account with network access rights?
Have you verified that TCP/IP is an enabled protocol and that port 1501 is explicitly defined as the access port on all network interfaces on the SQL server (i.e. in both the client protocols section and under all IP addresses under the TCP/IP properties for SQL Server 2005 Network Configuration section)
Can you connect via SQL Server Management Studio running on the CF server?
If all of the above are fine, have you tried a very simple query - for example just a "SELECT *" from a very small table or a test table with only one or two rows.  I add this one because the errors thrown by JDBC driver are sometimes cryptic and may simply be the result of SQL returning a error because there is a typo in a column name specified in a query, or from another syntax error.
Are you able to connect successfully to the SQL server from the CF server through explorer (Network) - to verify that you are able to authenticate using the login that has local access to the SQL instance.

Do you have the exact error message that's being returned?  Are you receiving this error as part of configuring the datasource in CF Admin Console or does it check out OK there but throw the error once you are running a page that contains a query?  I think we're going to need some more information to make an accurate diagnosis of what could be causing the problems here.
