Works fine in my environment.
Win 7 x64 SP1
Gpg4win 2.2.3 Light

configurations in gpg.conf
keyserver hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net

I had also seen the error message you got in gpg4win 2.2.1 or older,
which did not support TLS/SSL access because of old libraries (libcurl,
gnutls). There seems to be some trouble about TLS/SSL access. Your
firewall blocks TLS/SSL access by GnuPG?

How about other than --refresh-keys? cf. --recv-key or --search
