SRILM only supports building confusion networks from N-best lists.
For processing lattices I recommend Lidia Mangu's tool.

The program dealing with confusion networks is "nbest-lattice".

nbest-lattice -use-mesh -nbest L -write N

will produce a confusion network N from nbest list L.  See the man page
for details.
