Summary:: I have a fibre coupled LED light and an achromatic doublet lens, I know by placing the collimating lens at a distance equal to the focal length of the lens, the light will get collimated. But is the a simulation software available where I can input the parameters I can so as to visualize the process.

Can you be more specific? What are you hoping to get out of the simulation? If it's just a visualization aid, then there are online tools that can help you. Unless your LED is in the mid infrared, ray optics should be fine.
