What ports are opened in your proxy config file ?
As I understand, "seem to only effect tracker connections" means that your users can only connect to the 80 (http) port of some torrent-tracker outside your net.
Now, alittle bit of theory.
As we know, the files which we download via torrent, are not
located on the tracker, they are located on the tracker's users computers.
While exchanging the traffic (up- and downloading), as far as I remember, many unprivileged ports are used, say 4063, 4064, 4065, etc.
So, you need to allow all ports (but not only 80) in your proxy-server config to allow your users' traffic pass through.
This is how I see the solution of the problem.
