Try this:
CASE
     WHEN (@LoginAgentClient ='Agent')
       and      (dbo.ufn_User_RetrieveCount_UniqueView_v000101(l.ListID,@LoginID,@UserGroupID,100001)>0) THEN 'Y'
    ELSE (CASE
                   WHEN (@LoginAgentClient ='Client') THEN Null
                   ELSE  'N' END) END) AS  CountListViewed,

What's the sense in trying to nest cases? You can use this syntax without nesting instead:
case
   when @LoginAgentClient ='Agent' and     dbo.ufn_User_RetrieveCount_UniqueView_v000101(l.ListID,@LoginID,@UserGroupID,100001)>0
             then 'Y'
   when @LoginAgentClient ='Client'
             then NULL
   else 'N' end as CountListViewed

Open in new window

or even better
case @LoginAgentClient 
   when 'Agent' and     dbo.ufn_User_RetrieveCount_UniqueView_v000101(l.ListID,@LoginID,@UserGroupID,100001)>0
             then 'Y'
   when 'Client'
             then NULL
   else 'N' end as CountListViewed
