how about creating a simple test input first to validate each part of
your input?
e.g. something like this?

units real
region box block 0 10 0 10 0 10
create_box 1 box

create_atoms 1 single 5.0 5.0 5.0

pair_style  eam
pair_coeff  * * Pb_real.set

run 0

...and you will see, that this input cannot run. most likely because
your eam potential file is bogus or not in the right format.

no 300000 atoms on 1440 cores run needed to debug and fix. in general,
it is *strongly* recommended (and common sense dictates it, too), to
not start such a massive calculation without making small test runs on
the individual components to validate their correctness. if you waste
a few hours or days of computation on a desktop machine, no big
problem, and debugging/testing is fast.
