It seems like you've forced a Snow Leopard hack into a Lion system which was a bad idea because Lion and Snow Leopard are worlds apart!!
What you should try is running this package normally... http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1515
And if it doesn't work then try running the package above using the Pacifist hack. The package should be the same but it's a lion specific version. It also should replace the snow leopard files you have added to your system (in theory). I can't really test this as my lion isn't having this problem ;)

hey dan jackson,
I had a version of java installed but after installing and running matlab I ran into the "unable to locate a java runtime to invoke" error.
I downloaded the file from the link, opened it with Pacifist installing the 4 folders to their default location.
after restarting my mac, not only does "java -version" return the same "unable to locate a java runtime to invoke" message but also the Java Preferences app does not open: "No compatible version of Java 1.5+ is available." (it did before I reinstalled java)
thanks in advance

@Dan Jackson - Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!
Your method worked brilliantly on my iMac with Mac OS 10.6.8, on wwhich Java applications refused to run after the latest Apple update, which included a new version of Java SE 6 SE (1.6.0_33...).

Installing the latest JDK fixed this issue for me.
