Tor does encrypt everything within its network.

Not necessarily. See:
In general IPsec is gateway-to-gateway; the basic design is for
linking two networks by building an encrypted tunnel between
their two firewalls.
It is possible to create an end-to-end connection with IPsec, in
the sense of machine-to-machine but not in the sense of
user-to-user as in PGP email or user to app like an SSH login.
