You must set any maximum lead angle (Angle parameter). If there is 0 set, tool cannot have any lead Angle - but you want have some lead angle to have Heel Clearance 0.02. So you must allow tool to have some lead. Try to set to Angle parameter some value (between 2 and 88 as error message says).

Attached in an old sample that shows optimized to drive - also known as curvature matching. You can check out the parameters in these operations.

Yes, optimize to drive is a separate license.

Re: Optimized to Drive for Tool Axis

If you talk to your reseller or account manager, the add-on is called Curvature Matching [NX30407]. 

This activates the additional option for Tool Axis called “Optimized to Drive”.
