When POST request type is used with FORM data, API Manager tryout adds "APPLICATION/X-FORM-URLENCODED" as the default consumes type. 
Since ColdFusion requires the content-type to be "APPLICATION/X-WWW-FORM-URLENCODED", we must replace the former with the latter while creating / editing APIs from the Publisher Portal. 

Content Types starting with "x-" are not accepted standards. ColdFusion accepts APPLICATION/X-WWW-FORM-URLENCODED. 

Create REST API in ColdFusion with the attached files. 
Import REST API in API Manager
Use Tryout 

"Message": "The @FormParam is utilized when the content type of the request entity is not application/x-www-form-urlencoded"

REST api result

Add APPLICATION/X-WWW-FORM-URLENCODED to consumes list manually.
