Java 11 is not qualified with any version of Solr yet.  We don't know 
whether it works or not.  Java 9 is known to work with Solr 7.x.  My 
recommendation here is to stick with Java 8 until we can find and fix 
any problems with 11.

This OutOfMemoryError is not actually due to memory.  Java is saying 
that it failed to create a thread.

Typically this is caused by the OS restricting the number of processes a 
user is allowed to start.  Sometimes the OS might treat threads 
differently than processes so a different limit might need to be 
increased ... I have no idea whether AIX behaves that way or not.

The fact that it works with Java 8 is a little odd.  Maybe Java 11 
itself creates more threads than 8 does.
