AS Yuri said, "-v" is not an lftp option. So I would set
ange-ftp-ftp-program-args to '() (or nil).

And there are more variables to adapt. For example, comint-prompt-regexp
in the internal ange-ftp buffer has the value "^ftp> ", which doesn't
fit to lftp. This is hard-coded in function internal-ange-ftp-mode.

Finally, you'll need to debug ange-ftp in order to let it run with lftp.
