You are loading parameters for *standard* amino acids and nucleotides.

For non-standard residues, you have to create the parameters yourself. For
your example, however, setting the system up as ACE-PRO might do the trick.

[I don't recommend using ff02polEP.r1; only the non-EP version, ff02pol.r1
was really checked for its protein behavior. And, all of these backbone
modifications are probably irrelevant anyway for a single proline residue.]
