I cannot currently test NTLM authentication anywhere so this is
guesswork, but it sounds like a LWP problem to me.

  The module takes advantage of the Authen::NTLM module by Mark Bush.
  Since there is also another Authen::NTLM module available from CPAN
  by Yee Man Chan with an entirely different interface, it is
  necessary to ensure that you have the correct NTLM module.

So, the first step should be to ensure that you're using the correct
Authen::NTLM module from the NTLM (not Authen-NTLM !) CPAN distribution:
