(1) if you are trying to say "I tell him that..." -> "Je lui dis que..." because 'him' is is an indirect object, so you need an indirect object pronoun 'lui' to replace and indirect object.

(2) same thing, use 'lui'

It should be: (1) 'Je lui dis que ...' or Je le dis que ...'? (2) 'Je lui dis une nouvelle' or 'Je le dis une nouvelle'?
