I was thinking of changing an old heat pump into a chiller by
immersing the evaporator coil in a water bath, and then pumping the
water through another coil. Don't want to do it if there is a
possibility of lead contamination though.
Thanks in advance!

If you could find a surplus flat plate heat exchanger, your experiment
may be much more successful. Perhaps an online auction may have some
removed from equipment because the things can be expensive. The HVAC
supply houses in my area sell them too.
You might also look for a heat exchanger from an old water cooled ice
machine or refrigeration unit that could be sitting in a salvage yard.
