AFAIK, any errors relating to the DirectX libraries in Wine cannot be 
fixed by using native DLLs from a Windows installation. Look through the 
application's documentation to see if there are ways to configure it 
manually (i.e. .inf or .ini files) and turn off DirectInput features. 
You can check in the registry too.

Or save yourself the grief and run a Linux native mahjongg game like 
kmahjongg :o)

What version of Wine are you using? If it's not the latest, try 
downloading a newer release, your bug may have already been fixed.
