Juliet's father is already ready to disown Juliet and cast her out into the streets. Lying to him will only make things worse for her. Father's like Capulet felt their daughters were their property until they were married off. Disobeying her father would further humiliate him in front of others. He would consider doing something even more severe to her than kicking her out.
