Perhaps "Larceny" ?
It comes close to rhyming with "loyalty" with the same number of syllables and the "y" at the end.
Larceny means "theft" of personal goods which is in the greater area of "greed".
1. the wrongful taking and carrying away of the personal goods of another from his or her possession with intent to convert them to the taker's own use.
My big thesaurus (1987 based on Roget's) has nothing that meets both criteria. On the rhyme, your best options are cupidity, rapacity, venality, or voracity
Starting with L there's even less: longing and *lust * are the best.
