It can be "No man in the town is as tall as he is."

'him' because it is object of the clause.

The sentence in its full form would be: No man is taller in town than he is. The final "is" is elided (omitted). The correct form is then: No man is taller in town than he. But of course almost no one speaks this way any more. That is why the other form sounds correct to you. It is the form you are accustomed to hearing.
