Yeah, it's because it's a conffile, and dpkg assumes that if you deleted it you had a good reason. It will however ask the next time it installs diald if the provided version has changed.
To get it back:
1) Copy all the configuration files of diald to a safe place.
2) Purge the diald package (removing it won't do it).
3) Reinstall the diald package.
4) Restore your conffiles.
You'll find the default connect script in /etc/diald/connect.
