It works for me.

What do you have as the value of $TERM variable when you login via
PuTTY?  It might be set to something that dupes Emacs into thinking
it's a terminal that doesn't support colors.

Also, make sure the options on the "Colours" tab in the PuTTY
configuration for your session are set up correctly, as to not disable
colors.

If your PuTTY session is set up correctly, and if $TERM says something
sensible, the color support should happen automatically.  You don't
need to tell Emacs anything.
