iptables v1.3.5: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)

This solution applies to all other iptables modules/problems for OpenVZ, you'll just need to add them to both lists/lines below if you have modules other than what I have below.

The modules need to be enabled in both iptables and the OpenVZ hostnode itself and then the containers which need it must be restarted.

How To Enable IPTables Modules in OpenVZ

Ensure you have this line by editing /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config

IPTABLES_MODULES="ipt_REDIRECT ipt_REJECT ipt_tos ipt_TOS ipt_LOG ip_conntrack ipt_limit ipt_multiport iptable_filter iptable_mangle ipt_TCPMSS ipt_tcpmss ipt_ttl ipt_length ipt_state iptable_nat ip_nat_ftp"

Edit /etc/sysconfig/vz

IPTABLES="ipt_REDIRECT ipt_REJECT ipt_tos ipt_TOS ipt_LOG ip_conntrack ipt_limit ipt_multiport iptable_filter iptable_mangle ipt_TCPMSS ipt_tcpmss ipt_ttl ipt_length ipt_state iptable_nat ip_nat_ftp"

Enable Them

service restart iptables

You can restart the vz service too but that will take down other containers.  If only one container needs it, just restart the individual container.
