    No-- it is the person to whom you are speaking that is-- hopefully-- kindly:

    'I request that you kindly grant me leave.'

    Additionally, there's nothing ungrammatical or incorrect about requesting something in a kind manner:

    I kindly request. . .

    Moreover, the infinitive marker "to" is unecessary:

    I kindly request you grant me leave.
