When you swapped the buttons, to make the left work with a right click, did the reverse happen? It sounds like the left button is faulty. It is the most commonly used button, and I have seen them fail. I have had to swap them as you did, to be able to continue to use it.

Try disconnecting the touchpad. If the trackpoint left button starts working, it means the touchpad is faulty.
