Dear Thomas,

How careless I am! and sorry not to give you a sufficient information.
As you said, lua!=luatex.

I downloaded and installed luatex in the folder /usr/texbin.
I also copied it as texlua.

Now,  It seems to me that luatools is working without the previous  
However, there is a problem of doing "luatools --generate" yet  
because I used TeXlive based on the gwTeX distribution.

In my gwTeX, texmf.cnf is located in geTeX folder which also included  
the folders {texmf, texmf.gwtex. texmf.local, texmf.pkgs,  
texmf.texlive}, but neither in texmf.local/web2c nor in texmf/web2c.
Also, context is installed in the folder texmf.pkgs/tex/context

I think that it cause the problem.
Is it a real cause of the above problem?

Thank you.

Best regards,
