This is an operating system restriction It is not possible to deploy applications (ipa files) you find in your personal iTunes folder.
These applications are bound to the Apple ID they were downloaded with and account not be applied to another device using a different iTunes account.

In order to resolve the issue, you will need to  create a software package with the link to the application in the Apple App Store.
