Question about Legrand On-Q/ ALC 600W Dimmer Switch, Smooth Paddle, Almond
I have exactly the same setup with 15 Philips LEDs and said Legrand dimmer. In order to work, I had to hide inside the ceiling a 60W standard bulb so that the dimmer has more load and now works properly. Without the 60W bulb, the leds flicker while being dimmed, sometimes they flicker at 100%

The answer is NO. You need a Trailing Edge dimmer to control LEDs.
The Phillips master LED spot manual says:
Lighting controls: bulbs are dimmable 20-100% with ""select"" Trailing Edge RC devices
The Legrand pro21 manual does not say anything about being a Trailing edge dimmer.
Legrand diagrams show what appears to be incandescent bulbs, and say nothing about LEDs
LEDs cannot be dimmed as ordinary incandescent (tungsten) bulb.
Wikipedia article on dimmers includes technical stuff on Trailing edge dimmers
