What happened here is that you were trying to type an escape code into ssh -- eg. ~^Z (suspend) or ~. (quit) However, '~' is actually a fairly common character in normal usage, so ssh will pass it through to the remote login session unless you get the escape sequence exactly right. The ~ character must be the first thing on a new line, and it must be followed by one of the known key codes, which you can list by using the ~? escape during a ssh session. It seems that you typed something wrong: perhaps you managed to type ~~ which means your shell on the remote machine would receive the ~ character. This it would duely expand to be the path to your home directory. It then tried to execute that path, but directories are not executable, resulting in the 'permission denied' message.
