i tried my best  but not working 
You  can do it with trigger on lead..
like if lead is converted here is I wrote code for you..

trigger onLead on Lead (before update) 

    List<Lead> lstLead = new List<Lead>();
    lstLead = (List<Lead>)Trigger.New;
    set<String> setAccName = new set<String>();
    for( Lead currentLead : lstLead ){
        if (currentLead.IsConverted){
            setAccName.add( currentLead.Company );
    List<Account> lstAccount = new List<Account>();
    List<Account> lstAccountToUpdate = new List<Account>();
    lstAccount = [ SELECT ID,Name FROM Account WHERE Name In: setAccName];
    if( !lstAccount.isEmpty() && lstAccount.size() > 0 ){
        for( Account acc : lstAccount ){
            for( Lead leadObj : lstLead ){
                if( acc.Name == leadObj.Company ){
                    Account accToUpdate = new Account();
                    accToUpdate.Id = acc.Id;
                    accToUpdate.Name = leadObj.Company;
                    accToUpdate.Industry = leadObj.Industry;
                    accToUpdate.AnnualRevenue = leadObj.AnnualRevenue;
                    accToUpdate.BillingCity = leadObj.City;
                    accToUpdate.BillingState = leadObj.State;
                    accToUpdate.BillingCountry = leadObj.Country;
                    accToUpdate.BillingPostalCode = leadObj.PostalCode;
                    accToUpdate.Rating = leadObj.Rating;
                    accToUpdate.NumberOfEmployees = leadObj.NumberOfEmployees;
                    accToUpdate.Phone = leadObj.Phone;
                    accToUpdate.Fax = leadObj.Fax;
                    accToUpdate.Website = leadObj.Website;

Hi Pradeep,

As per my understanding, we can only acheive it through custom Convert button. When you click on the custom Convert button we need to write a code to convert it manually. I do not think we can safely achieve it through Trigger.
