Just tell the tab-engraver to use 7 strings instead of 6:

#(define lute-tunings '(9 4 -1 -5 -10 -15 -20))
\score {
\property Score.stringTunings = #lute-tunings

(I don't know the proper tuning of a 7-string lute. I assumed guitar tuning with an a-string added above the upper e-string. The numbers are semitones relative to c')

The tab-note-heads-engraver explicitely denies note heads on the

      int pos = 2 * tab_string - number_of_strings - 1; // No tab-note between 
the string !!!

No, it explicitly denies note-heads between the strings - that is not the same :-)

so you'll have to use LilyPond's \override mechanism with extra-offset.

No. :-)
