Looking at one source, Names, Nicknames and Misspelled Names by Nancy
Ellen Carlberg, which is more a collection than an explanation, I had thought
you would be most certainly correct, but not according to this book. Luise
says see Louise, Lucy and there are dozens of versions of those, but
nothing close to Elizabeth, as would seem logical - Liza/Louisa/Luise. In
another source, German Names - A Practical Guide by Kenneth L. Smith, a very
scholarly approach, again, many versions of Elizabeth, but beginning with Li
rather than Lo or Lu. Louise or Luise isn't even mentioned here. So this
Luise appears to derive from Louise or Lucy rather than Elizabeth..
According to The Facts on File Dictionary of First Names by Dunkling and
Gosling, again, lists of alternates and nicknames for Elizabeth along with its
historical origin but none beginning with Lo or Lu. Louise is declared as the
French feminine form of Louis. Lucy is stated to be the "normal English
form of Lucia". Luise is not listed.
If I locate anything to the contrary, I'll let you know.

Al Muth has done a lot of work in Dabie, but it appears that deaths are
the last thing he works on- after marriages and births- and he appears
not to have done them for the data you seek.
As you may know, there is some connection between Luise and Elisabeth
that must have something to do with the short version of Elisabeth (if
anyone on this list can explain this, I would be glad to see it). With
this in mind, please look at the latest Master Pedigree Database (MPD)
that was just uploaded yesterday and look for Anna Elisabeth Nickel.
You will not see any death data, but you will see that name connected to
both Gottfried Zaretzke and Georg Makus, although we are not showing the
two Anna Elisabeth Nickel as the same person at this point.
