while i am not as much of an expert as the others, under normal driving conditions, it is doubtful you will damage your engine. Running lean means that the engine runs hotter, which could lead to detonation of the fuel, causing you to blow or melt the engine, but you have to be pushing the engine to where it is running hot enough for that to happen, which would be hard driving conditions and not daily driving.

If the cars are running lean from the factory, we are losing HP because less fuel is being delivered and tuning would help this.
