You installed a "custom" python 3.3, didn't you? So it does not help
installing Ubuntu's python3-tk: your python3.3 interpreter won't even
look into "system" packages.

Most probably, you need to install the proper development libraries and
*recompile* the Python 3.3 interpreter:

# apt-get install tk-dev
