This is a putty key. It will not work with *nix ssh clients. You need to use PuTTYgen or similar software in order to convert your key to openssh format.

openssh and PuTTY are using different key types (but you can convert between them). In PuTTYgen you need to go to Conversions->Export OpenSSH, export your private key and store it as id_rsa. More on SO or SU.
