The B-spline interpolation order is, by default, 4. The Amoeba force
field requires a B-spline order of at least 5. So you need to add an
&ewald section to your input file and set order=5:


We should probably make 5 the default for Amoeba simulations...

Yes, that should be fine. In fact, this strategy is recommended on page
276 of the Amber 14 manual. I recommend perusing that part of the
manual for advice here.
