I believe the problem is that your working directory is not in clr.Path (a 
Python list), which specifies paths in which to search for assemblies.

  >>> import clr
  >>> clr.AddReferenceToFile('IconTools.dll')
  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File , line 0, in input##6
    File , line 0, in AddReferenceToFile##7
  RuntimeError: Could not add reference to assembly IconTools.dll
  >>> import os
  >>> clr.Path.append(os.getcwd())
  >>> clr.AddReferenceToFile('IconTools.dll')
  >>> import IconTools
  >>> IconTools
  <module IconTools (CLS module)>
