The actual signing of the peace treaty was not done with the colonists' consent, but it didn't need to be. It was done because the Federation had this thing about, you know, not wanting to go to war with Cardassia ever again. Given this, the opinion of a few hundred wannabe-revolutionaries just doesn't seem quite so important.
And look where it got them. Fake peace is Fake, and letting an obviously aggressive faction have territory as a concession for NON-aggression basically empowered the known bully in that corner of space.

Way to go, Feds.
