The topology file is the definitive atom-definiations used in the simulation. You just need to confirm that the Chlorine in your *.top has an matches the atomtype from Amber99SB. As far as being written as C instead CL in the pdb, you could likely just use sed to find and replace these into CL so VMD treats them properly (a similar problem happens if you use OPLS and have calcium ions (name CA) vmd thinks they are all alpha-carbons).

Subject: [gmx-users] Chlorine in PDBs
Could someone enlighten me what are the "correct" (Gromacs-wise) atom
type and PDB column numbers for a chlorine substituent in a ligand ? I
use a MOE-written PDBs as MD input (Amber99SB), and if a chlorine is
present, its written as CL (both letters uppercase) in the 13th and 14th
column. Now when feeding that to acpype, the output PDB has a CL again,
but shifted to columns 14 and 15 and with a C in the last element
column. Seeing how this is similar to how box ions are written, I gave
it no heed, but now PDBs saved from a completed trajectory, display the
CL as a carbon in VMD, Chimera, or MOE. I can obviously edit that but
I'd like to be sure if my CLs are being treated as chlorines during the MD.
