I am not familiar with any restrictions about auto-play videos inserted in a landing page, However, I would not recommend that, since in my opinion, it distracts the user's attention from the written content / the marketing message of the LP.

Hello,

 

Autoplay videos can increase the page load time and AdWords considers a slow page a bad user experience. Test your page with Page insights before asigning it to an AdWords Ad and try to improve the loading speed to above a score of 80/100.

 

Look at how a google tool Page Insights is evaluating the following page with 3 autoplay videos at a score of 37/100 on desktops and 8/100 on mobiles .
