(1) Why do you want to do this? Amber makes no use of the tree classification
information in the prmtop file. If you need it for other programs, you could
hand-edit the prmtop to put your classification in there.

(2) Are the two trees both correct (yours and LEaP's)?

Have you used parmchk? This is what is intended for people to use with
missing parameters in gaff.
