"can't find xx server" is some sort of communications issue. They usually are transient (unless the server is down) and clear up if you re-try.

The strange thing in your report -- the sequence is:
Contact authentication server
The "Launcher" handles everything down to the "select world" point.
When you select a world, the Launcher passes a Token (previously acquired from the authentication server in response to userid/password) to the Game Client.
The Game client then does the actual login.
~/Library/Logs/LotroLauncher.log -- tends to have "nothing useful" (basically just lists your "options" )
~/Library/Logs/com.turbine.lotroclient -- PatchClient.log -- normally only has info about patching
They "might" have a failure message.
