I was able to create lead if contact does not exist, but hidden fields are not getting mapped:

Can anybody advise on how to achieve this?

Below is Prechat page:

<apex:page showHeader="false"  standardController="Account" extensions="preChatRemoting_Con">
<!-- This script takes the endpoint URL parameter passed from the deployment page and makes it the action for the form -->

<script type="text/javascript">
     (function() {
     function handlePageLoad() {
       var endpointMatcher = new RegExp("[\\?\\&]endpoint=([^&#]*)");
       document.getElementById('prechatForm').setAttribute('action',
       decodeURIComponent(endpointMatcher.exec(document.location.search)[1]));
     } if (window.addEventListener) {
              window.addEventListener('load', handlePageLoad, false);
   } else { window.attachEvent('onload', handlePageLoad, false);
              }})();

  function SubmitForm(createLead) {

      if (!createLead) {  //We found a matching contact based on email provided, so DO NOT send parameters to create a new lead.
          document.getElementById("optionA").value="";
          document.getElementById("optionB").value="false";
      }
      else {   //No matching contact was found, so send parameters required to create a new lead.
          document.getElementById("optionA").value="FirstName,true;LastName,true;Company,true;Email,true;Description,true;Status;true;Type,true;leadSource,true;";
          document.getElementById("optionB").value="true";
      }
      document.getElementById("prechatForm").submit();
  }

  function getRemoteContact()
    {
        var contactEmail = document.getElementById('contactEmail').value;
        Visualforce.remoting.Manager.invokeAction('{!$RemoteAction.preChatRemoting_Con.getcontact}', contactEmail, function(result, event){
                if (event.status) {
                    SubmitForm(false);  //contact found, don't create a lead
                } else if (event.type === 'exception') {
                    SubmitForm(true);  //contact NOT found, DO create a lead
                } else {
                    SubmitForm(false);  //unknown error, DON'T create a lead
                }
            },
            {escape: true}
        );
    }
</script>

<form method="post" id="prechatForm">

I found the solution of this problem.

Issue was related to mapping of fields in the JavaScript Changed the line :

document.getElementById("optionA").value="FirstName,true;LastName,true;Company,true;Email,true;Description,true;Status;true;Type,true;leadSource,true;";

to

document.getElementById("optionA").value="FirstName,true;LastName,true;Company,true;Email,true;Status;true;LeadSource,true;RecordTypeId,true;Entity__c,true;";
