Yeah. I face the same issue too as your situation.

This might be due to the (less than perfect) patching of the grub.cfg file.
Examine it, and if you find lines that look something like that:
: # (removed by Converter ...
: # (removed by Converter
comment out the statement lines (if/else/fi) as well.
If that's not the case, please attach the helper log.
Solution from Plamen is spot on!
I'm currently in the process of starting a migration of 50+ machines to a new vmware cluster. Most of the machines are running centos 7 or rhel 7.
Since the problem still exists in the latest vCenter Converter (6.2.0 build-8466193), and I don't like to go through every server manually, Is there a way to correct this (less than perfect) behavior of the grub patching in the current version?
You can use older Converter, should not be a problem with RHEL7. (If you experience such problem of course, you need to test)
There is no general solution for this - some *nix complains about empty statement i.e. just comment, others complains about empty operator i.e. colon..
