No, don't use 9 for the charge of TFLE! Total charge is including the whole protein. Presumably TFLE charge is 0, i.e., it is not a charged sidechain.
Also you should delete hydrogens and then use Surface Color, as in my previous instructions.

Here are instructions if you want to show the Coulombic ESP coloring on the less rugged surface calculated without hydrogens (as is usually done; radii automatically adjust to compensate):

If you don't see that dialog, you can raise it using menu: Tools… Surface/Binding Analysis… Electrostatic Surface Coloring. The default name of that grid is Coulombic ESP. (Do not use the Coulombic Surface Coloring dialog for coloring! After the hydrogens with many positive charges have been deleted, mostly negative charges will be left, and you will get an incorrect very red surface using the Coulombic Surface Coloring dialog.)

Add Charge is in the menu under Tools.. Structure Editing, or can be run with command "addcharge". It has two options for calculating the charges of nonstandard residues: AM1-BCC or Gasteiger. Since the message shows there was a problem calculating using the AM1-BCC method on your mutated residues, I would try the Gasteiger method instead.

I am getting this error which I am not able to understand.
