I'd JB Weld it into a 1/8x1/4 brass bushing. It should fit nicely...

there is a better way to do that...

two threaded fittings + rubber washers... as you squeeze the washers the hole in the middle of them contracts and forms a perfect seal

The pipe sizes are given in the PDF linked above. The pipe is metric. Refrigeration tube is measured by the ID, not the OD like water pipe.

The inlet is 9.7 and the outlet is 6.53.

Check the metric section for compatible pipe. You won't find it in the plumbing section. You may have to visit a refrigeration supply for the tubing and parts. For that pressure, it should be soldered. Hard silver brazing is recommended, but regular plumbing or silver bearing solder should work fine.
