Id say the issue is the LEDs not putting enough load on the circuit. Probably need to measure how much resistance the normal globes provide and then the LEDS and somehow make up the difference with resistors?

You need something like this link to simulate a globe. downside is they get extremely hot,, also wont help if the globe/led does ever blow in future.
