I would say "Yes". It is almost true.
Leadership style definitely influences the project success because it does reflect on the team, client and the way the project is run.
Different leadership styles are not only applicable to project type but within a project itself, the PM might need to wear different hats and pivot from one leadership style to another when dealing with different teams.
One style fits all doesn’t work anymore and it’s important for a skilled PM to adapt their leadership style based on the different situations, projects and teams.
Like nearly everything else with projects, context counts. Depending on the constraints, the team's make up and other factors, leadership style will need to be tailored to fit.
This ability to adapt one's style to fit the needs of the project is just one of the many reasons why a broad breadth & depth of experience is needed for someone to be a competent PM.
