This case indicates one of the things:

  • You have specified the proxy settings wrong It happens when you've mistyped in torrc specifying your proxy server address, port and credentials. Just check it - if it's all fine and you can use a web browser with these specific settings, then it's not the case
  • Your proxy server requires some additional auth tokens Like a Windows domain login, Kerberos ticket(for Microsoft products it can be a case). Try using some connection wrapper like an itermediate proxy of your own to see the logs and exact connection flow. It helps to save time guessing what exactly is going wrong. You use it for a web browser first - checking that this proxy chain is actually working and having a "positive" workflow. Then try to use Tor through your proxy and troubleshoot and/or identify the problem precisely.
  • Your proxy is blocking by-ip-basis Tor directory servers and/or bridge IPs It's a censorship, try to use bridges(maybe, set up your own) that don't publish their identity in BridgeDB. Also try pluggable transports like Obfs 3 and 4
