Is there a verb that means "make lukewarm"? I am trying to use it to say that the relations between two people instead of warming up as become lukewarm, but I don't know any verb that means "make lukewarm" or "become lukewarm".


You could say their relationship "cooled," that doesn't necessarily mark lukewarm as an endpoint though. You could also use "drift apart" if your idiom doesn't have to include temperature
