That is not at all a problem with Preview.  What do you expect if you
lie to LaTeX about the input encoding you use?

If you don't use a latin1 input encoding, then don't tell LaTeX that
you do.

In the lower left of the Emacs buffer mode line, you'll find a letter
indicating encoding of the file.  Probably something like "1" for
latin-1, and "u" for utf8.  If you want to keep using utf8, you'll
need to tell LaTeX that utf8 is your input encoding, not latin1.

Alternatively,  you need to tell Emacs that it should use Latin-1 to
encode your file instead of the system default, using
C-x RET f latin1 RET
and then saving the file.
