Jmeter will of course not modify the max connection settings of webapp. 
How could it?

Possible explanations:

  1) Your webapp uses the database connection in a small portion of your 
requests only and thus makes it possible to have 50 concurrent requests.
  2) The webapp uses all 15 db connections and the web request waits 
until a db connection gets freed. The web requests are still concurrent, 
but mostly waiting.
  3) You are not using 50 concurrent requests, but make them sequential.
