Rand can have a real impact on whether there's war with Iran...

...but he has to do it from the inside, as a moderate. If he adopts a pure non-interventionist position like his father, he'll be labelled an isolationist and ignored like his father. Rand does more good being pro-sanctions and anti-war than being against both sanctions and war. It's as simple as that.

The reason Rand lies about Iran is to gain political influence, yes, but why does he want political influence? Is it vanity? No, it's because he wants to actually accomplish something for libertarianism, not just talk.
