I had this problem a while ago, and solved it by always giving the full path 
to the bib files in the preamble. If I remember correctly, the problem has to 
do with LyX's compilation strategy. To produce a pdf file, Lyx first produces a 
.tex file in a temporary directory, and then runs (pdf)latex on it. At that 
point, latex can no longer find the .bib database because it is no longer in 
the same directory as the .tex file.

Have you tried exporting your .lyx  file to a  latex (.tex) file and then 
running (pdf)latex on it from the command line? If I am right, it should 
produce correct references while the "View>PDF" command in Lyx (which uses the 
strategy above) shouldn't. Looking at the full Latex log (Document>Latex log) 
can be helfpul too.
