If I understand the issue you are having correctly, I experienced the same thing when I purchased my D7000 using LR4.

What worked for me was turning off Active-D Lighting. ViewNX can read this information and adjust appropriately, LR cannot (as far as I know) and your shots will look extremely washed out. Most of the in-camera settings pertaining to how your shot looks (vivid, neutral, etc) do not affect raw files but I believe that the way ADL works makes it impossible to not affect them.

Easy enough to give it a shot, hope it helps.
