During the talk with Nagato, it was stated that the technique cannot bring back those who've been dead for so long or else Jiraya would've been revived. Hell, I'm pretty sure he'd have brought back Rin if that were possible. I always got the impression that Madara's expectation of revival was an overestimation as a result.
