Could it not be 'człowiek jest człowiekiem'?

No, this would be "a person is a ...person"

Absolutely not in Polish and using "man" to mean "human" is frowned upon in English too, those days. Kobiety również są ludźmi(women are people too), you know. ;)

Seriously though, if you meant "Mężczyzna jest człowiekiem" is not accepted, you should report it.

Miężczyzna to jest człowiekiem is not true Polish?

You don't use Instrumental after "to".

Why is it człowiek in the sentence 'mężczyzna to człowiek' but człowiekiem in the sentence 'dziewczynka to człowiekiem'?

It's not, "Dziewczynka to człowiekiem" is wrong.

It's either "[Mężczyzna/Dziewczynka] to człowiek" or "[Mężczyzna/Dziewczynka] jest człowiekiem".
