I am not sure if this is really based on Tolkien's Middle Earth or if it is just another game that steals the title therefrom. The game was released as part of a series. Other titles in the series included Panzer, Blitzkrieg, Fall of the Third Reich, D-Day, Armorcar, Porkchop Hill, Africa Corps, Waterloo, The Battle of Monmouth, Starship Troopers, Invasion of the Mud People and The Boston Marathon.

Arnold Bogenschutz suggests that this may be somehow connected with a board game published by SPI with the same title. He seems to remember seeing the computer version, but has no further details.

Please contact me if you know the type of this game, the name of the author and whether it for a fact is a Tolkien game.
