Not sure about PAX or SAKE, but SIM and AKA weren't compiled into
wpa_supplicant.  The .config file had them turned off the last time the
program was built.  (I can tell because your log contained this line:

, in case you're wondering.)

The EAP_TTLS_*.conf file looks OK, but the .config file when you built
wpa_supplicant needs to have CONFIG_EAP_AKA and/or CONFIG_EAP_SIM turned
on.  Otherwise wpa_supplicant won't be able to use those EAP methods.

Not sure yet -- the first step is to recompile wpa_supplicant to handle
the EAP method you've chosen (AKA?).

The log you posted has an EAP-Failure in it, likely because the EAP
method advertised by the RADIUS server isn't supported by the client...

I'm not sure, but you can find out for yourself by looking at the sample
config file (if those settings are in it):
