1st: There is no "right" conversion. It depends on what You want to get.
So, what version of Photoshop, do You use to convert the image? Do You 
have cms activated in PS? What kind of icc profiles do You use for 
conversion (RGB and CMYK profiles are important.) What is Your working 

If You can determine the used icc profiles for the conversion in PS, 
then You can try to process the files the same way in imagemagick using 
lcms. I did this using gs8.11 (8.5 APFL gs is recommended) by using the 
jpg driver of gs and jpegicc to apply the appropiate icc profile to the 
JPEG I got by gs, like David Purton mentioned.

This depends on the used icc profiles. If You'll use the same profiles 
in PS You will get the same amount of Black in the saved RGB jpg.
