Try below code:

Add-PSSnapin "Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell"

$site = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://SharePointSite/subsite")
$spweb = $site.OpenWeb()

Write-Output $spweb.Title

$page = $spweb.GetFile("SitePages/Dummy.aspx")

Write-Output $page.Url

$wpm = $spweb.GetLimitedWebPartManager($page.Url,  [System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.PersonalizationScope]::Shared)

$listTemplate = [Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListTemplateType]::170

$listName = "Prompt Links"


Write-Output "debug"

$ViewID = $list.Views["All Promoted Links"].id

$ViewURL = $list.Views["All Promoted Links"].url

Write-Output $ViewID

$ListViewWebPart = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.XsltListViewWebPart


$ListViewWebPart.Title = "All Promoted Links"

$ListViewWebPart.ListName = ($list.ID).ToString("B").ToUpper()

$ListViewWebPart.ViewGuid = ($ViewID).ToString("B").ToUpper()


$ListViewWebPart.ZoneID = "wpz"

$ListViewWebPart.PartOrder = 0

$ListViewWebPart.TitleUrl = $ViewURL 

$ListViewWebPart.DetailLink = $ViewURL 

$wpm.AddWebPart($ListViewWebPart, "", 0)

I would recommend installing PnP-PowerShell and use command Add-PnPWebPartToWebPartPage

Add-PnPWebPartToWebPartPage -ServerRelativePageUrl "/sites/demo/sitepages/home.aspx" -XML $webpart -ZoneId "Header" -ZoneIndex 1 

You will find a lot of other useful PS commands from this library. Just take a look at the documentation with list of all commands.
