I would really recommend to upgrade to version 2.6, which handles
all such special characters much better. Then you can simply typein
the character you want it and save the file using UTF-8 encoding.

I don't have any installation of 2.2 available, but my first try would
be to write \\ae instead of \ae.

When writing lyrics to music in Lilypond 2.2.6 (as packages with Debian
Sarge) I cannot start a syllable with an \ae dypthong.  The error is:

lily-1852058339.ly:185:24: error: unknown escaped string: `\ae':
      pr\ae- sta me- \ae
                         men- ti

Note that the first \ae is parsed correctly.  I have tried replacing
the offending syllable with {}\ae but it still does not work.

Please let me know if you need any more information.  I cannot find
recommendations about the format of bug reports on your web site.
