I think you will have to post your pdb's not clear without that
why LEaP thinks that the proline is a C-terminal residue.

Also, try making ACE-PRO-NME, with the standard NME residue. If that works,
you can look for the differences between NME and your NH2 residue (other than
the missing methyl group!) that might explain the different behavior.

...good luck...dac
