My attempts at cutting the clamped portion proved futile.

Getting the clamp off was actually the hardest part of my fix.

The tool that jim showed you is not the correct type for pex. I have used that type of clamp in my house and this is the tool I used Waterline | Surlok Starter Set With Rings | Home Depot Canada
It has the stops built in so you do not over crimp the joint. In the picture it looks like the clamp has been over tightened. You may need to take the pex off the tube and make sure the plastic T is no damaged. You would then shorten the pex and start with a fresh end (if you have enough length in the pex line).
