Yes.

That's your mistake.  The hashes dumped with cachedump require a patched
version of John the Ripper, but you do not really need to be cracking
those hashes.

Instead, you may dump LM hashes with one of the pwdump tools.  There's a
collection of such tools here:

Brief descriptions for some of them can be found here:

I'd start with pwdump2.

LM hashes are supported by John the Ripper out of the box.
