Does that header get to Catalyst?  Obviously, check that first.

I have this in  a "after 'prepare_headers'":

   $res->secure( 1 ) if lc( $req->header( 'Https' ) || '' ) eq 'on';

The load balancer sends all traffic to the same port.  The load balancer
sets that header for SSL traffic.

I used to send to two different ports and then detect SSL based on the port
number.  Same result either way.
