At least for setuid programs, environment variables like LD_LIBRARY_PATH or LD_PRELOAD are ignored for security reasons. See the man page ld.so(8) for details. I could imagine it's the same or at least similar for programs with capabilities set. (Neither the man page capabilities(7) nor the man page ld.so(8) mention such restrictions, though.)
