There are several threads covering dead bolt removal and installation. Here is one.

Classic deadbolt and actuator access pictures

The problem you have is in the dead bolt itself. The square hole is made of cheap pot metal and over time it can wear and brake inside. I believe the above thread lists where to find a replacement dead bolt.
