Leib is not automatically Louis, but I've seen other instances of this change.

It's not absolutely proven, but there's some strong evidence that this is the correct man - same ship, arrival month and year, occupation, and last residence on both the manifest and the naturalization petition. Age is approximately correct too.

If someone can find a photo of Louis' headstone, it might prove that Louis = Leib (as with luck, his Hebrew name will be on the stone).
