Actually the leaderboards are about -first achievements, world or shard firsts, that's what they're counting on there
For instance I have 1 world first (I killed some Guardian NPC before anyone else), 6 shard first kills that weren't world firsts, etc...
Yep, that's it; we're restricted to what Trion gives us. The information in the character profiles is from Trion's Leaderboard info; they don't give us everyone's character info, just toons who have discoveries. And if you change shards your shard won't update in that data until you get a discovery on your new shard.
