Are there really any good top laners who do a majority of there damage outside of melee range?

Nidalee, Elise, Jayce, Vladimir

None of those are really top tier champions in the top lane, but thats the direction I'd send you in
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

also Kennen (though he does get close to enemies for his ult) or other slightly less conventional mages top like Karma and Lissandra.

Quinn, Vayne, and Teemo are also top lane ranged champions but arnt nearly as effective as the ones moon stated, Kayle could be considered one but she has to use an ability to be ranged, Swain is ranged too

Kennen, Elise, Rumble (kinda), Ryze, Singed, Jayce, Swain and Nidalee... Can't think of any more.

I've seen multiple amounts of high-elo players dominate with top Lissandra.

Meh, depends who you are playing as. Jayce can turn from a passive laner to a strong all-in champion in the turn of an eye. If you let Vayne get too far ahead, she can wreck in teamfights if left unchecked. But Vayne is an extremely niche pick and rarer to see.

Quinn is a monster top laner. Underrated. She ***** on most melees. Also, do not like going up against Urgot, dudes turns around fights extremely well, especially if you're trying to all-in him near his tower..

As for common top laners, these are the ones that annoy me the most: Kennen, Lissandra because escapes, Jayce/ Elise/ Nidalee for poking then all-in with massive damage. These last 3 are such a pain to learn the matchup, considering that while you're trying to trade or going all-in they are thinking the same thing while poking the **** out of you.

Quinn is not that underrated top lane. Quite strong actually as you said, but the problem is having double AD carries. 2x ADC is bad for late game.
