.. Its not a substantial amount more for the full-fat package.

Most people even though are price sensitive are also "value sensitive" and probably though "well for just 100 more I can have the full package, I have enough money that this won't be a problem". For us to really compare what the market would preffer we would need something like a table only for 200, hh for 200 and hybrid for 300 (and probably the hybrid would still win for having more functions for not a lot higher cost). We can even see here in the forum how many users bought a game they already finished on X1/PS4 just to play on the go. So it is pretty clear that portability is the main thing on the console. N64 and GC had great Nintendo games and weren't able to cross 40M sales.

So if the Lite's price was cut to $149 or $99, do you think that would be enough to match the OG's sales or be enough to flip the 70-30 ratio?

I don't.

If the difference in price between Lite and Regular was bigger the most likely occurence would be the increase of the sales of Lite (but we know it isn't really something direct, 2DS didn't sell much in comparison to 3DS as the loss of funcionality and form factor wasn't that well accepted right?).

If instead of Lite we had stationary for the same price do you think it would have sold better or worse than Lite?
