where did you install JVM. I think LimeWire cant find JVM because its installed in place your shell is not looking. Try to locate the directory of JVM and export the path

#export PATH

this will add path to your default shell path and then you should be able to install.

You should add the above lines to your ~/.bash_profile, so that they are always set whenever you log in.
