If I understand correctly you're asking if it's possible to authenticate to the server using some other method (such as public key) after an account has been locked by too many failed password attempts. Is this correct?
If an account has been administratively locked (for whatever reason, too many failed logins, explicitly by the administrator, etc) Tectia Server will not allow that user to login regardless of the authentication method.
Allowing the user of a locked account to login via public key (or any other method) would be a security hole.
