As far as I know ControllerState does not use a keyboard as
controller. You could use a virtual joystick to trick Windows (and
Mathematica) to think the keyboard is a joystick which can be seen
with ControllerState. ppjoy can do this (http://ppjoy.blogspot.com/
2009/11/finally-new-version.html), another one that I haven't tried
can be found at
