A 200 volt rating is a NEMA rating for a motor on a 208 volt WYE system, there is no such thing as a 208 delta, I would believe this is the manufactures fault as I can't see how it can cause damage if wired on a WYE system and the fact that they supplied it rated for 208 volts which is a WYE system and one of the most common three phase voltages in the US.

Here is a NEMA voltage chart, notice the listings for motors, a motor designed to run on 208 will have a 200 volt rating.
