Can you make symbolic links that have the upper case, and feed them to the 

  LIB/%_m.mod: %_m.f90
          @echo "building $*_m.mod"
          touch $@
          ln -sf $@ $$(echo $*_m | tr [a-z] [A-Z]).mod

Here I have a working sample where I use a target-specific assignment to define
a variable called $(UC) which holds the upper-cased stem:

  $ make
  make: *** No rule to make target '', needed by 'foo.out'.  Stop.
  $ touch
  $ make
  making foo.out (upcased as FOO.out)


  $ cat Makefile
  %.out: UC = $$(echo $* | tr [a-z] [A-Z])

          @echo "making $*.out (upcased as $(UC).out)"


The $* is evaluated at the time the target is dispatched, because it's
in a target-specific assignment. The $$ on $$(echo ...) ensures
that we get a literal $(echo ...) passed to the shell during
recipe execution.

Hope I didn't do anything wrong that makes this inapplicable to
your case!

Cheers ...
