Frodo CLEARLY Cursed Gollum to leap into the Crack of Doom when he attacked him on the slopes of Orodruin. That Curse was fulfilled because of Gollum's avarice for The One Ring outweighed his good sense to not attack someone who could kill him. The same is true of The Army of the Dead. Isildur, acting literally as Eru's agent upon Middle-Earth at that moment, Cursed them if they refused to fulfill their oaths. Morgoth's Curse upon Húrin's family came true because of the actions of Túrin, which just fulfilled the Curse's objectives. Again, Turin was literally hypnotised by Glaurung at Nargothrond into doing what needed to be done for the curse to work. The fact that Morgoth's creatures got directly involved and took away his free will, even for a single moment, shows me that the curse was actively being carried out by a malicious god.
