Enable Live Templates option in File Templates is not about including existing live template snippets in file templates, it just allows using templates variables there. Adding a custom variable, like
#[[$Title$]]#, allows creating a placeholder for a value you can enter when file is created; predefined variable
#[[$END$]]#allows to specify cursor position in created file.
