qtractor supports standard midi format files (smf) format 0 and 1 only.

assuming lilypond is writing those .midi files as smf alright, you can 
just copy or rename the .midi files into .mid and voilá

otoh, i guess it's missing a "All files (*.*)" filter type in the midi 
file open dialogs in qtractor. will fix that asap ;)
