Low observability is far more important for survivability of a missile or manned vehicle and considering the JASSM can carry a bigger warhead, I'd imagine that bigger warhead, when said bigger warhead is nuclear, would translate to far greater damage to a strategic target than whatever additional damage the sheer speed and kinetic energy of the Brahmos could supply as "compensation for a smaller warhead."
As a conventionally-armed anti-ship missile, the Brahmos is far from a piece of junk, certainly more effective than any Western missiles dedicated to that role; but that's all it's really good for.
