$ctl and $Log_file are PowerShell variables? Then you need to enclose them in double quotes, instead of or in addition to the ticks:
SQLLDR USERID = $DB_DETAILS , CONTROL= "'$ctl'", log= "'$LOG_FILE'", direct = TRUE

Open in new window

because PowerShell interprets single quotes (ticks) as delimiters for "literal strings" (do not change anything), while double quotes allow for variable expansion and subexpression evaluation.
