As reported by LACNIC this is

Unallocated resource: 191.168.1.15

191.168.1.15 is not associated with any ISP or country till date.

Interesting. I can only find 190.0.0.0/19 as closest match in the Internet routing table. A traceroute from a route server in the US goes:

Tracing the route to 191.168.1.15

Can you ask your client to make a traceroute to one of your IP addresses?

You can telnet to Router servers (e.g. route-views.oregon-ix.net and follow the instructions on the banner text), see for more options http://www.traceroute.org/#Route%20Servers

Are you sure that it's not a typo and he means 192.168?

Go to Network Solutions and do a "whois" lookup and it will tell you if it has been registered.
