here we do not know why the author made that remark: too sophisticated.

As such, that remark was enigmatic, mysterious.

Lofty is a good word for describing something that's high above the ground, or someone who acts like she's high above everyone else.

The second part of the statement, "My novels are too sophisticated for the American public" implies that the author is indeed being lofty.

Why isn't "lofty" the answer here?

Lofty means proud. It is out of scope in this context.
