"sample2e.tex" is an ascii file.
I think the following distills the issue:
: echo "He said, ``No'', and then he left." | pandoc --from=latex --to=html
>He said, No
pandoc: <stdout>: commitAndReleaseBuffer: invalid argument
(Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character)
It seems that pandoc is tripping on the LaTeX markup for
double quotes. It also seems to trip on forced linebreaks
indicated by "\\".
My guess, without looking at any code, is that pandoc
supports only a very rudimentary subset of LaTeX markup
for translation to html.
