Yep, your OOM is due to faceting.

How many documents does your index have, how many fields do you facet on
and approximately how many unique values does your facet fields have?

You are not specifying any maximum heap size (-Xmx), which you should do
in order to avoid unpleasant surprises. Facets and sorting are often
memory hungry, but your system seems to have 13GB free RAM so the easy
solution attempt would be to increase the heap until Solr serves the
facets without OOM.
