Is misleading wrong?

Say I have pocket Aces and make Quads on the flop.

I slow play and my opponent bets.

Is it considered some sort of etiquette breach if I said something to him like, "I think you may be holding an Ace, but I'll call." or does that fall under bluffing?

Its only an etiquette breach if he goes all-in, and you slow roll him by thinking about your decision.

I think you are suppose to say, "I have flopped quad Aces. And this time I mean it!"

No. Poker is an information (and misinformation) game. Misleading is fine. Kind of like when you sigh and throw in your chips like you don't want to do it (holding the nuts).

Nothing to feel guilty about there. Though if you're playing sharp players, you're probably giving away more information than you realize by saying something like this.

Yeah, it seems you're always better off uttering as few words as possible when your cards are still in play. Especially online. Then Moneymakerfan929 will have no idea what you have!
