I have a dwarf nectarine prunes Persica which has leaf curl.

The top of the tree has died. Is the tree diseased? Should I pull it out? If I pull it out can I plant a lemon there or will the lemon suffer the same fate?

It must be applied at budswell for nectarine so check your tree.  If you prune the tree and see there's green wood, it's not dead.  

You could replant a lemon tree there if it is in full sun, just dig through cow manure and Dynamic Lifter pellets through first, to improve the soil.
