Fascinating discussion. I recall that Clinton Rossiter published a book on "Democratic Dictatorship" that might diagnose a related phenomenon.

And of course, distinguishing between a Ceaserist democratic leader (which seems bad) vs. a temporary democratic dictatorship in case of emergencies (which some regard as good) is contested. FDR seems like a leader who could fit into either or both categories.
