<http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.18/Documentation/notation/common-notation-for-vocal-music#multiple-syllables-to-one-note> has an example covering the use of LyricTie with Italian text. Using the same feature with German text (and probably other languages too), or more accurately, with multiple syllables of the same word, requires overriding word-space, so I suggest to add the following after the current example (i.e. after line 611/12 in vocal.itely, unless I’m mistaken):

If the syllables belong to one word, it is necessary to override
word space.

    a4 a g c b8[( a]) b4 a2 \breathe
    \bar "" \break
    a4 c d4. c8 d4 e c2
  \addlyrics {
    Er ging aus der Kam -- mer sein,
    \markup \override #'(word-space . 0)
    \tied-lyric #"kö~nig" -- li -- chen
    Saal so rein,
@end lilypond

Best regards, Simon
