Time of Ice, Quiet Contemplation, Back to Basics, Dream Tides, Wrath of Marit Lage, Temporal Distortion, Neko-Te Thalakos Dreamsower, Wall of Stolen Identity, Frost Titan, Queen of Ice, Wall of Ice, Niblis of Frost, Guardian of Tazeem, Icefall Regent, Dungeon Geists, Mesmerizing Benthid, House Guildmage, Tidebinder Mage, Watertrap Weaver, Frost Lynx, Stitched Mangler, Fogwalker, and Vertigo Spawn would probably be my picks for "freeze" tribal.
Alternately, if you're not invested in Dimir, so much as in the creature itself, you could build a Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, or Empress Galina deck, since those commanders probably best represent what the card is doing.

I recommend Mimic Vat. It can double and in some cases triple the amount of damage Konrad deals. When a creature dies, put it on the vat: that's 1 damage from dying, and another damage for leaving the grave if the creature was yours. Then the old imprinted creature falls off the vat, another damage. So 2-3 damage per creature dying instead of 1!
Here are others you might consider: Neko-Te, Witch's Cottage, Memorial to Folly, Crypt of Agadeem, Buried Alive, Champion of Stray Souls, Death Denied, Empty the Catacombs, Footbottom Feast, Bone Harvest, Wake the Dead, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Cauldron of Souls, Dread Summons, Awaken the Erstwhile

Neko-Te has an ability that triggers when the equipped creature deals damage to a player. In your example, Lightning Elemental will deal 4 damage to your opponent, which will trigger Neko-Te's second ability. When that triggered ability resolves, your opponent will lose 1 life. The Elemental is not dealing an extra damage, nor is its damage replaced.
It's important to note that the life loss from Neko-Te's second ability is not damage. If something cares about a player being damaged, this ability will not trigger that. For instance, Sower of Discord will not trigger from the Neko-Te life loss, only from the damage the Elemental did.

Neko-Te says "Whenever equipped creature deals damage to a player, that player loses 1 life."
Does this mean that the Lightning Elemental will deal 1 additional damage to the player, making the total damage it deals 5, or does this mean the Lightning Elemental will only deal 1 damage to the player?

Looks good! These may interest you:
Mimic Vat (this card effectively triples Konrad's triggers per creature dying! They hit grave, leave grave to go on vat, then hop from vat back into grave)
Shred Memory (transmutes to Mindcrank/Mesmeric Orb, or can be used to deal 4 damage to opps)
Vengeful Pharaoh (using Konrad's activated ability between Pharaoh's triggers, you can kill multiple creatures that attacked you all while dealing 3+ damage to opps per activation)
