16 level pitch isn't possible in Ableton as it is in an MPC. Each sound you want to play chromatically, you have to convert to a new simpler track (which in my opinion just creates more tracks than needed and is inferior to MPC's simple integrated method). Even Maschine by default spreads every sound in a kit across the keyboard in pitch chromatically.

Anyway, on Push 2, highlight the pad you want and then hit 'convert to'. It will create a new Simpler with just that sound which you can now play pitched.
