That only shows that CUPS can see your LJ5, not that another program can
see CUPS.

That why I suggested using nmap. If it can see CUPS when run from the
login where you run WINE, then you'll have verified that the problem is
not with your OS. Another way is to use netcat (known as nc in some
incarnations). If you do 'nc' to the printer, you can see what happens: 

$ nc localhost 631 
[socket closed straightaway]

This means CUPS isn't listening or has some other error.

$ nc localhost 631 
[you don't get a prompt straight back] 
Hello world 
[you get an HTML page back reporting a 405 error]

This means that CUPS is alive and listening to port 631.
