Stir together chili-lime rub, brown sugar, lime zest, and ½ teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle and rub mixture over all sides of pork. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Heat oil in medium skillet over high heat. Add pork; cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned on all sides, turning frequently. Set pork aside.
Place sweet potatoes, apples, and broth in a 6-quart slow cooker. Place pork roast on top. Stir together ½ cup apple butter, honey, lime juice, 1 tablespoon cilantro, and remaining ½ teaspoon salt in small bowl; pour over pork. Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2½ hours or low for 4 to 5 hours or until pork reaches 145°.
