You need to go to Analysis> Table Layout> Show Field Labels for Columns
I have the same problem. The option you pointed to is checked and grayed out, but I have no field labels. To hide the field labels, I right clicked on the field label and selected hide field labels. Now I don't see any way to bring them back. Is there any other place where I can look to add them back in?

I found it. I went to the 'Measure Names' Pill on the column shelf and selected 'Show Header.'

I wanted to add to this, glad you got it figured out below, but that didn't work for me in Tableau 10.
I had the same issue where the columns option was grayed out. Select "Show Field Labels for Rows" then swap columns and rows and then swap back, This added field labels back to columns for me.
