Is it ok to tell people lies to get closer to the truth (Like pretending you have an informant who told you things when you don't actually)?

    NO that is called entrapment.

    That can backfire because it wouldn't be hard to suspect you of being manipulative.

    Many people sever all ties with manipulators

      But what if you alienate the genuine people that become aware of your ruse?
      Trust will be lost & they'll be offended that you needed to stoop to lying instead of being overt with them
