The parameters in lipid.itp are not compatible with the AMBER force fields.
There are published parameters for several lipid types using AMBER/GAFF
parameters. You should look into those. If the lipid parameters require new
nonbonded or bonded parameters, then those need to either be declared in the
force field itself or in the lipid topology.
