This error (and the message you saw during ./waf configure) really indicates that the visualizer was not compiled.  The reason it is not compiled is, as Chaim suggested, are missing dependencies.

Check if you have installed everything that is recommended on ndnsim.net.

Run it under a debugger to get more information (./waf --run <program> --command-template="gdb --args %s <args>").
