this is not a LAMMPS question, but a VMD question. you should post
these kind of questions on the VMD mailing list.
the *very* obvious answer is: write a little tool, that converts the
output you have into a file format that *is* by VMD.
for details on that, you *definitely* should read the VMD docs and ask
further questions on the VMD mailing list.
