I would guess that your original image is monochrome and is using more than 8 bits/pixel. In that case the conversion implies a reduction of bit depth from (say) 16 to 8 bits/pixel, and there are various command line options in dcm2pnm that allow you to influence that conversion. I would start with --min-max-window and check the result.
