I presume that you are running bjam from
C:\Program Files\boost\boost_1_36_0\libs\python\example\tutorial
What exactly is the command that you are using?
Can you post the output with --debug-configuration?

The relevant line in my user-config.jam is
  using python : 2.5 : "C:/Program Files/Python25" ;
So your python initialization should work.
