Looks like old dinner plates made of Melamine.

Hmm... that's a Dupont Product. I thought Esterbrook was making their own material, but I am NO expert in this field. I look forward to your reply!

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Does anyone know how to repair the hairline cracks in the lip below ring on a cap Esterbrook Pastel Purse pen.

They can be solvent welded but it often doesn’t go well. Ink stains cause them stand out. 
 

You could remove the cap lip, make a new one from a donor cap and hide the joint under the cap band

As noted above, it really depends on how bad (and how many) they are.  I've been able to use Easy-Solv for some decent solvent welds, but it's the ink stain that is the real problem.  The pastel CH pens are notorious for cap lip cracks....and usually in the multiple range.
