Usually *inferior-lisp* is in comint-mode.  comint-mode-hook would
probably work but it's problematic because comint-mode is also used by
shell-mode and gud-mode etc.  Also note that local-set-key defines a key
in the currently active keymap, which for comint-mode is comint-mode-map
but of course the comint-mode-map is shared in all buffers with
comint-mode.  You could achieve the same with something like

(define-key comint-mode-map ...)

Alternatively you can use modes like inf-lisp or inferior-slime which
have have their own keymaps (and problems).  I use the latter.
