How to set a list lookup form control connected to a text column

Ok, here is a weird one.  I have a text column that contains an employee number.  On my form I set the value of this column using a List Lookup control.  This is so that it is not truly a list lookup column, but the possible entries are restricted to the list of available employees.  So far everything is working great.  The problem comes in whenever I try to create or update an item using a workflow.  I am using Nintex Workflow and Forms 2010.

 

If I upload the document to the library and use the item form to update the fields, then the value is visible on the form when viewing the document properties.

I have tried to discover if there was any extra information being stored in the field to make it link properly on the form but there isn't anything.  No ID or anything like that.  Not sure how to set a field like this and still have the value on the form.
