I would recommend trying either:

PathAllowFilter ^[a-zA-Z0-9_\.\$()\[\]-]+$


PathAllowFilter "^[a-zA-Z0-9_\\.\$()\\[\\]-]+$"

The difference is the quoting. When dealing with a quoted string,
proftpd's configuration parser will itself see the backslash, and handle
it as an escape character. With regular expressions like this, you need
the regular expression compiler to see that backslash. So you can either
remove the quotes (as in the first example), or keep the quotes and add
another backslash (as in the second example).

Hope this helps,
