You can't force the landlord to replace the carpet. If the matter is important to you, then bring it up with the landlord BEFORE you sign any lease. He may the willing to have it replaced or to make some other arrangement with you.

If he isn't willing to budge, however, keep that in mind and decide if you really want to rent the place or not.

While it is a good idea to document that the carpet is in poor condition prior to your move in, trying to "embarrass" the LL about it (assuming you've already decided to rent the place) will get you nowhere and is likely to give him second thoughts about renting to you.
