Maybe asking in a macro forum would get you an expert answer.

I can only guess that since live view focuses via pixel edge (I think) rather than a separate phase detect mechanism, the third-party lens with no electronics isn’t giving the camera the information (such as distance) it needs to guarantee an exposure based on what you put in it.

This site may not answer your question, but there is a treasure trove of information about Nikon TTL in it:
