No, "to amend" means to "add to" or "attach to the end of", like a document or a statement. Amenable itself has no verb form -- it's a simple adjective like "hot" or "blue".
There are verbs that mean "to make or become amenable":
Transitive (make someone amenable to)
appease, satisfy, befriend, etc.
Intransitive (become amenable to)
acquiesce, agree, concede, accede, consent, etc.
