I hope someone else can also offer an opinion here, but often times people
put mom_priv and mom_log as separate directories for each mom, but the
config file is a symlink to somewhere on the shared file system.

This (without the question mark) looks to me to say that any directory that
is /User/homes on any machine is viewable on any of the compute nodes.

I believe mail_domain is the parameter you're looking for:

qmgr -c 'set server mail_domain=<desired domain>'

I would recommend avoiding this setup if possible. At the least, no one
tests that our software is able to do this and it seems likely that they
would interfere with each others' jobs and general operating. If possible,
I'd recommend selecting a few nodes from the cluster to remove from LSF's
view, configure for TORQUE, and test. I think that's most likely to give
you a picture of how TORQUE behaves.
