What's the lie?
That you can encounter other players. Two people found each other on the very first day it was released, stood on the exact same spot on the same planet, tried throwing grenades or doing anything they could to see if they could detect each other, and nothing. So far this guy's official response to those two on Twitter has been "Wow, you guys! There are so many people playing!"
Hello Games also implied heavily that there would be a co-op component where you could explore with other people, which is not remotely true.
My favorite reaction was something like "Wow, we never expected people to be able to try this so soon!" This may have been the case had the game not been so dreadfully boring.
His original statement was that due to the fact that the universe is so large, it would be unlikely or even "impossible" for two players to find each other in the game world.
Apparently they couldn't fit the multiplayer features into the development cycle and decided to ship the game without them. Instead all players are invisible to each other. Things like ships are still visible, oddly enough, but the actual player characters are not.
So the solution to not being able to include multiplayer and then lying about it existing is to make players invisible and hope no one ever actually tries to find anyone.
I don't know who that is or much of anything about the game or why I should care, but I'd like to cast my vote for putting a "David Letterman" tag on every new Colbert clip henceforth.

What smug ass hole.
Somewhere, Peter Molyneux is realizing that he has a son.
there wouldn't even be any point to multiplayer, it would still just be running around an empty landscape
