A question about the Great Liberator, Simon Bolivar!

Split #1: the idiom “P is remembered for doing X” is an elegant way to refer to someone’s famous achievement. The constructions “P is remembered in that he did X” and “P is remembered to have done X” are far more awkward and less smooth. This is a problem in (A) & (B) & (C) & (D).

Split #2: parallelism. The overall structure is “Bolivar is remembered ___ and ___” — those two blanks must have matching grammatical forms. Let’s look at what’s in those slots:

(A) “in that he led … and for instilling” = NOT parallel

(B) “to have led … and that he instilled” = NOT parallel

(C) “to have led … and having instilled” = NOT parallel

(D) “for leading … and to have instilled” = NOT parallel

(E) “for leading … and for instilling” = CORRECT!

From either of these splits, we see that (E) is the only possible answer.
