I think you probably know this list already, but just in case, the  
WAI activity maintains a list of such tools:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/existingtools.html

I am by far not an expert, but in this list, the two I know a little  
are:
Bobby: http://www.watchfire.com/products/desktop/accessibilitytesting/ 
default.aspx
Valet: http://valet.webthing.com/

Hope this helps.

If not, as you said, this is perhaps not the best list to discuss the  
topic, and searching the following list archives will surely give a  
lot of results, as I suspect it's a recurring question there:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-ig/
Just looking for "508 tool" gave me a few hundred results...
