Aloha Dmitri,

Currently, you can debug such problems by looking at the source code of
ob-dot.el.  Or, by asking the list, as you did.

Your example is lacking a :file header argument.  dot source code blocks
produce graphics files and babel leaves it to the user to name the
output file.  The file-name-extension function is looking for the value
of the :file header argument, so that it can configure the call to dot.
It is expecting to see a string, but gets nil because the header
argument is absent.

Also, the correct keyword is :exports, with a final "s".

You can find an example of dot code use here:
