Sorry, I read it as three $2K chips for $6K total, which would at least have made sense (except the bit about having $2K chips in the first place).
That not being the case though, the whole situation is just stupid because the number of chips put in isn't even connected to the verbal bet.
If you don't have reason to think it's an angle shoot then in this case I'd be inclined to either do as WV says above (ignore the strict interpretation of the rule and make the bet 2000) or ask the player which six he meant (600 or 6000) and make that the bet.
If you do have reason to believe he's angle shooting, IDK but I probably hold him to 600 (assuming it's an opening bet postflop, as WV correctly notes that it'd be an invalid raise preflop - preflop I'd probably just rule it as a minraise).
