That's explaining why it works for you! The pdfTeX engine first would transform 'Müller' into an internal representation, presumingly 'M"uller'.

It would be nice if \includegraphics and \includepdf would learn to transform such names into an encoding as used by the file system. An option like [utf8] could perform that. This ability could also enhance pdfTeX to open temporary, index, or BIB files with umlauts.
