What would happen if you were hit by both attacks? Since torment forces you to use a different attack, and encore forces you to repeat attacks. Do they cancel each other out, or is it the last one to hit you?

Good question that leads to another question from me. I don't know the answer to this question here by you.
Ity's just like taunt and Torment with Defence moves.

Encore+Torment would simply make the pokemon struggle every alternate turn, because Torment says they can't use the same move twice in a row, while Encore prevents them from using a different move, so they have to use Struggle.

It would fail because just read on. Example: Let's say the opponent uses torment and you use Iron Head. And then it uses Encore then you struggle because you used a move 2 times. The next turn you are fine because you will restart.
