Why... it's a native Kindle format?

The only source of TPZ files is Amazon and they don't distribute TPZ files without DRM. calibre will not convert any file protected by DRM.

See Topaz Reconsidered. As I said there, see Apprentice Alf's Blog for DRM issues.

The last time I hit this issue last summer, it was for a history-related nonfiction book. At the time, de-DRM'ing Topaz and converting would take a few applications and the results were unpredictable. I got a refund from Amazon instead and bought it from B&N, who gave me an epub (much better!)

wallcraft's post suggests things have gotten better on the conversion side, though.

You had a issue I can understand. However, the original poster has a Kindle. TPZ files are created for exclusive use on the Kindle. There is no issue here, is there?

Mmm. Good point. The question seems kind of...nonsensical.
