Did you set the tool size in Cut2D to 0.493?
What material are you cutting?
Climb cut, or conventional?
Inside, or Outside?
What kind of machine?

There are about 100 things that can cause what you're seeing.

Have you tried cutting on or outside the line/circle?  You may need to adjust the offset of the tool path to achieve the correct diameter of the finished circle
