The output from the debug run looks OK. so you can try to add the productid to 
the ups.conf

 	driver = usbhid-ups
 	port = /dev/usb/hiddev0
	productid = 4001
 	desc = "Tripp Lite SmartOnline 1500VA"

And I think it ignore the port value. so you can set that to auto. Se the :
man usbhid-ups

Now run it as normal and se if the driver starts and the upsd so you can get 
some values back with: 
upsc su1500
