I've been there before.
Check which Lennard-Jones function was used to publish the data to
which you are comparing. There are some nomenclature differences
regarding sigma. GROAMCS defines sigma as the distance where the LJ
potential is zero. Some forcefields define sigma as the bottom of the
Checking wether your reference uses 6-12 or 6-9 LJ funcions may also help.
