And in the end he does finally "the sacrifice play". I'll say Cap influenced this too.
I'm not saying that Tony shouldn't clash with Steve, because he should. But no one else did, so the arc of Steve earning his leadership is limited to his interactions with Tony.

Steve doesn't say that Tony has never performed the sacrifice play. He says that Tony isn't the type of person to sacrifice himself. That he doesn't have it in him.

And the end of the movie proves that Cap was wrong. Tony is capable of self-sacrifice.

Not really. A good leader listens to people who know more than they do, but not all people who listen to people who know more than they do are leaders.
