As per @dgpv's suggestion here: #834 (comment)

@dgpv could you review?

We removed the similar construction for ct_bits in an earlier commit.
The construction is to keep the value between -1 and 18. This kind of
means that a user that inputs a value outside that range will not get an
error, but will use the value on the edge of the range instead.

It's probably better to return an error (generated by secp256k1) in the
case of invalid input.

Looks good to me, this makes the code consistent in that both ct_bits and ct_exponent are not restricted and the expectation being that secp256k1_rangeproof_sign will just fail if incorrect values are set to these parameters.
