NUT runs the notify script as the "nut" user on many systems, including Debian. Check to see if $PATH is set the same, and that the nut user has privileges to run the SMS program.

You could also try temporarily wrapping the SMS portion in a subshell that pipes stdout/stderr to mail (or a file):

( echo "..." | gammu-smsd-inject ... ) 2>&1 | mail -s "errors from SMS" $EMAIL
