Mouse and keyboard just offer a better range of controls. Only games where controllers would have an advantage (or be on par with mouse and keyboard at least, imo) would be sports and racing games.

I'd have to say though that the controller is probably the best device when it comes to sports games. KB and mouse for FPS, then wheel for racing. It wouldn't suprised me if the tables were turned when playing madden on an xbox versus the computer though.
