Can a neighbor refuse to allow their existing fence to be joined by a new one on the adjacent property?

Yes, they can refuse. The fence is their property, so you must have permission to join their fence to yours. If not, you can build to the edge of your property line, leaving a gap between the two. You can have your property surveyed to determine your exact property line, and if their fence is on the line you can connect at those points only. You can also make them remove the fence if it's on your property.

You are asking if you have the right to ask your neighbor to move his fence back from the common property line. Fence lines and set backs are governed by local ordinances. In my area a homeowner can build a fence directly on the property line. There is no setback rule.You need to start at your town building department and ask if there is any setback rule in effect in your town. You should find your answer there.
