it looks like you're getting the path wrong.
try it like this:

echo `c:\\imagemagick\\convert c:\\images\\gladius.tiff

in unix you can redirect stderr into stdout to see any error messages
like so:
echo `convert $file1 $file2 2>&1';

you can't do this in windows, but I remember finding a dos program
called stderr.exe that you can pipe commands into that does the same

one possibility that comes to mind is maybe you don't have write
access to the temp directory convert uses.

also try checking apache's error log and posting the results.
