It sounds like you have two different problems here: one is that you can't get
the TLS stuff working, and the second is that you can't get the ssh stuff
working.  Neither seem particular to the ruby-libvirt bindings, so leave them
out for the moment; just do everything on the command-line.

I'll start with the TLS stuff:
1)  Did you follow all of the instructions on http://libvirt.org/remote.html to
begin with?
2)  You say you have certs setup, which is good, but the command you are using:

> dplummer vps-manager:~$ virsh -c xen://lvh2/

Isn't going to work for two reasons.  The first is that you didn't specify a
command; you'll want to add at least "list" on the end there.  The more
important reason is that if you are using TLS, you need a connection string like
xen+tls://lvh2 (assuming the certificates are setup properly).  If this still
fails, you can run the command with LIBVIRT_DEBUG=1 on the front to get some
additional debugging information.

Now, for ssh, I'm not all that familiar with it.  My guess is that you don't
have it setup passwordless, but I'm not sure about that.  You can try the
LIBVIRT_DEBUG=1 trick here to get some additional information.

For what it's worth, oVirt is using the ruby-libvirt bindings extensively via
the kerberos mechanism (qemu+tcp://, and then the appropriate kerberos
configuration in /etc/libvirt/libvirt.conf).  But it sounds like your issues are
more fundamental configuration issues.
