Did he mistakenly identify the real God by using what he thought was his proper name, or did he know exactly what he was doing and wanted no higher god than the one who honored him with special attention and cute nicknames.
I believe that the tent which was this artifact of something, existed and there was a legend attached.
see how much of Ezekiel ends up in the NT.
HEB 11:13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. 14 People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 Instead, they were longing for a better country--a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.
So much for the idea of a holy Israel.
Judges 17:5; led to a Danite slaughter.
So, the point of Judges is, if we just had a temple and a king. It looks like a slanted history to support what did come about, so is not a true documentary, but a propaganda piece to rewrite history, made to be what would have been accepted at the time (a long time later than the purported events) as being a documentary.
Judges 19-20 Near extinction of tribe of Benjamin due to Levite incitement.

You should try reading more than your own propaganda.
Ezekiel is called that, son of man, through the whole book.
does this seem peculiar to anyone else?
Go, shut thyself within thine house. But thou, O son of man, behold, they shall put bands upon thee, and shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not go out among them: And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reprover: for they are a rebellious house. But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say unto them
LK 24:13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.

LK 24:25 He said to them, "How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?" 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.
Slow of heart, or whatever,he calls them (very Ezekiel-like terms or conditions), as if at some time he had already explained all this, then at this moment, he unblocks their ability to understand, as he goes over all of it, again.
