I have noticed this same issue with my D800E. Page 55 of the Nikon manual states the following:

"Depending on the scene, exposure may differ from that which would be obtained when live view is not used. Metering in live view is adjusted to suit the live view display, producing photographs with exposure close to what is seen in the monitor."

As a result I don't use the meter in live view, I use the analog meter on the top LCD. For those of you who may suggest that this has something to do with not closing the eyepiece shutter, it does not.

Why display a meter in LV if it may not be accurate?
