You don't need transit visa for Amsterdum.
But to make sure you can check consulate website.

I am also in same situation, my H1 visa on passport expired and I am going to get visa stampped in india. I am also going thru Amsterdam. Netherland Embassy website is not very helpful in finding out if we need transit visa in this situation. I appreciate if anyone who has gone thru similar situation let us know. Thanks in advance.

I found the following information from their website at:
Airport Transit VISA
An Airport Transit visa is not required for Indian Passport holders.
For other nationals who require an airport transit visa, the following documents need to be submitted:
1. A valid visa for the country of destination (a photocopy of the visa should be attached);
2. A confirmed ticket for the onward destination.
An airport transit visa entitles the holder to enter the international transit area of the airport but not the territory of The Netherlands.
I checked with Netherlands consulate and for Indian passport holder No air transit visa is required.
