You might just be lacking signets. More signets = more minion damage/ Neph Spirit elemental damage.

Can confirm, with only about 50 sigs eaten I couldn't comfortably kill Terul (it was a crapshoot - if he went on a rampage and used the blade nova couple times in a row, all spirits died & he regened a bunch). Then I found a Peace warder and now with scourges he goes down pretty ez

(also pay attention to your minion AR, you absolutely need some sources of it to make your guys hit anything)

I use nephalem spirit, but I dont see any change in my dmg nor my merc's dmg. Also I dont see anything like an 'aura' provided by the spirit. Does it only give ele dmg to my summons?
edit: problem solved!

I think the helm from spirits of the nephalem set is pretty nice for midgame setup. Sr I cant insert item, dont know why.

Morthwyrtha has 10% less minion damage and no bonus to vitality but +1 max minions. I think its worth it for the extra 3 minions.

Just a quick question because I'm not sure with the game mechanics here. Does Lahma gloves affect summons or the buff somehow? I guess it only boosts spells right?

Yep, the only stat benefitting minions is the +2 all skills.
