You can't repair this without cutting out and replacing the fitting. This line is constantly under pressure.
Anything else will not be a permanent fix

the only temporary fix that might work is to wrap the pipe with rubber gasket material then use a hose clamp or clamps over the gasket material and tighten down the clamps. This works well if the leak is in the middle of the pipe, it's not as effective on a leak at a joint
