Have you checked to see if theres any import/export differences in settings for the size as I think that fbx might have a scale attribute somewhere, could be wrong though

Check to ensure both apps are using the same scale settings in feet or meters. If that fails then use the scale in FBX but it is really inaccurate..

Sounds like the issue is when us export from Maya back to Max.
