1. 'Led' is the past participle of the verb 'to lead', so you are saying that you were the leader of the tour. It can also mean 'guide', as you say.

2. 'Butt heads with' is an American idiom meaning to have arguments or confrontations with someone. It conveys the image of animals clashing (or butting) their heads together during a fight.
