I don't think Dain really believed in Balin's little "Questlet." Since he had looked into Moria, and seen the Balrog (although probably not face-to-face), he knew that there was no point in trying to set up a colony there again, because the Balrog (and Orcs) would just destroy it. He couldn't hold Balin back, so I guess he just let him go, and figured if he didn't come back, people wouldn't try leaving.
