You messed up your 20-managesieve.conf. You should only have to follow  
the below instruction to get the sieve listener running:

   # Uncomment to enable managesieve protocol:
   #protocols = $protocols sieve

So restore the original (it looks like it is in  
20-managesieve.conf.ucf-dist) an just uncomment the one line that is  
mentioned above so that it reads

   # Uncomment to enable managesieve protocol:
   protocols = $protocols sieve
