I think (not 100%) the problem is related to how your ardour.rc file is setup.  
It is possible to hardwire ardour to midi (which I think is happening).  This 
is how I have done it.
<MIDI-port tag="hw:0" device="/dev/snd/midiC0D0" type="alsa/raw" 
If you remove the above line or and just leave 
 <MIDI-port tag="seq" device="ardour" type="alsa/sequencer" mode="duplex"/>
then you will be able to connect everything via qjackctl.
