A user is not able to add an existing Object field to a Page Layout for that Object in Vault.
The object has Object Types enabled, and the Object field has not yet been added to the Object Type that the Page Layout is used for.
Add the field to the corresponding Object Type first by navigating to Admin >> Configuration >> Objects >> (Object) >> Object Types.
