We don't do macros in LilyPond, but why do you need them?

Syllables should never overlap, unless you ask for it.  It seems from
looking at your .ps file, that the length of the words is not
calculated correctly.  You're using characters with accents, that
don't exist in TeX.  If I run your .ly file through LilyPond, nothing
overlaps, but none of the accented characters 'e `a are printed.

I think you should use:

   \'e \`a

etc, but I'm not really sure.

I've sent this to the mailing list; please send any other questions
there too.
