Someone had to manipulate the uchiha into a revolt in the first place and I dont see sasukes father doing that as the master mind. Just like akatsuki, tobi was the real leader from the shadows IMO.
Nobody manipulate Uchiha into revolt. The relationship sour during the reign of the 2nd and become worse after their relocation by the konoha council. Both are suspicious of each other and the appearance of the kyuubi makes the relationship worse. Madara doesn't have to do anything. Its a ticking time bomb and its bound to happen. Its pure paranoia that makes them make that decision.
The one time I can believe Madara pulling the string is during the war at the Rain. He needs Rinnengan and Rinnengan only appear at that place if too many bullshit happen there.
Madara claims that he gave Nagato the Rinnegan, so by making a shit storm there and forcing it appear, Madara did give Pain is Rinnengan.
