Encantado a conocerte. = Pleased to meet you.

On the other hand,

Encantado a conocerlo. = Pleased to meet it.

The 1st expression is frequently used and is a correct response to an introduction.

I think you have to wonder when, if ever, "conocerlo" would be appropriate.

I suggest that "conocerlo" is an incorrect response.

If I were introduced to the President I don't know if "te" would be the appropriate "you" (Of course, I don't know if I'd use encantado either).
Q - I hadn't thought of that, but I agree with you. I'd say something like "It's a great honour to meet you, Mr. President.' In Spanish of course.
