First you need to check your key got added OK, it probably did, but worth making sure it look OK in Horizon/web gui. I normally create a brand new key, and so need to use the new private key when logging in.

OpenStack has to inject the key into the instance. It depends what image you have, but normally you would have cloud-init that picks up the ssh key from the metadata service (if you use cirros or the ubuntu cloud image).

What image are you using? Are you using config drive or the metadata service? Those kinds of things are worth checking.

These are the docs I remember helped me: http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-compute/admin/content/booting-a-test-image.html
