I don't know TrueCrypt, but it does occur to me that maybe it's looking for a cipher algorithm module that isn't loaded .. and that isn't being auto-loaded. Is there any clue whatever as to the name of the missing module?

Probably it checks using lsmod program, which is not in the $PATH.
Try to run truecrypt when root, I mean real root with su -.

At least on my box:
/dev/mapper/truecrypt0 on /develop/loc/igor/v533 type ext2 (rw)
/dev/hda12 on /xfs/bigfs type xfs (rw,dmapi,mtpt=/xfs/bigfs)
/dev/hda9 on /xfs/small type xfs (rw,dmapi,mtpt=/xfs/small)
[root@home ~]# truecrypt -d
truecrypt: Kernel module not loaded
[root@home ~]# su -
[root@home ~]# truecrypt -d
[root@home ~]#
