With a max acceleration of 13, it seems that an LP-13 could effectively flee any combatant sent its way. It has the ability to select when and where the engagement occurs, maneuvering into position well in advance of the opponent, attacking if the opportunity presents, fleeing otherwise. Is this correct? How does one hunt down and intercept an evasive LP-13?

Stern chases against something with higher thrust are usually futile. You beat LP-13s by making sure they run out of fuel before they get their launch solutions in. See the Raiding Orion writeup for an example of this done in practice.

Strategically, you kill their tenders. One of the strategic choices that defined the Daixing is the need to make it a survivable tender...and one capable of contributing to the fight.
