If you took a group of Germans and a number of color samples, it would certainly be hard to get them to agree on all of them, especially what each of them would consider "Lila" and "Violett". But I think it is the idea, the intention, the "world model" so to speak, that counts: Lila, Violett and Purpur are three separate colors in the minds of most speakers of Germans.
So, many people problaby could not agree what's what, but I don't think that they see those words as mere synonyms, words that you could delete from the language without loss of power of expression.
