There is no solution for your problem. There are only two ways to get the installer for free.

Check back periodically to see if it is fixed.
If you got dollars you could look into buying a boxed copy of Lotro (make sure it is the Turbine version not the Codemasters version). Wait for the box to be delivered to your house. The Mithril Edition is the newest installer on discs. It is kind of old at this point because it does not have the Rider of Rohan content.
Note: Turbine had a number of glitches with their digital installers recently. One installers is bundled with Steam - ample opportunity for either or both to foul it up. The other installer is bundled with Pando Media Booster and Happy Cloud - triple threat for foul ups.
