It would be nice if you can provide the simplified sample LaTeX file so
that the problem (to me looks trivial) is clear. Check whether the

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphics} % or graphicx

\begin{document}
\includegraphics{dir1/figure.eps}
\includegraphics{dir2/figure.eps}
\end{document}

works perfectly for me. Note dir1 and dir2 can be in the same folder as
the LaTeX file or in the TEXINPUTS search path.

Regards.
