It's definitely an "access denied" problem. Either the user you've specified doesn't have the necessary permission (and I'm not that knowledgeable on SQL Server data collectors, so I'm not going to be of any help there), or the COM object isn't marshalling correctly through .NET Interop.

Sorry – I know that's not helpful to you, but this isn't really a PowerShell thing. You're using a COM object that messes with SQL Server – while you're using PowerShell to do it, none of my PowerShell experience helps me understand SQL or COM :).
