Even a diesel performance converter will be much lower stall speed than gas. It may be possible that the gas and diesel do have the same bolt pattern, but I really don't know for sure.
Normal driving I'm hardly ever above 23-2500rpm during acceleration. At TC lockup at 58-59 mph im at 1500 rpm. But i also have 35" tires. But when I'm around 3-3700 my truck pulls very hard and makes quite a bit of power.
It is also possible the the TC is worn out/overheated too many times and some of the fins are broke/cracked etc. The 7.3's are known for failing mainly due to overheating from the well undersized cooler. Hence the reason why so many people put the 6.0L coolers in the 7.3.
