You need to expand your paths before adding them to load-path.

Huh?  I have

(setq load-path (append (list "~/elisp") load-path))

in my .emacs since ages, and that has always worked.

"~" is an acronym that UNIX shells understand. It's not part of a path specification. GNU Emacs seems to do the right thing in some instances. Using the expand-file-name function, let's say ten times in ~/.emacs, wastes after a few thousand launches a measurable amount of time and energy – and conserves far more when you don't protect/ expand ~. What is ~ meaning in Losedos? What is C:\ meaning in UNIX? Or classic Mac OS 8 or 9?

Windows, c'est un peu comme le beaujolais nouveau: à chaque nouvelle cuvée on sait que ce sera dégueulasse, mais on en prend quand même, par masochisme.
