"The critic shows him his mistakes" should also be correct.

Do you mean "critic" as in "a person whose profession is to critically review"? That would need to be der Kritiker or die Kritikerin.

No. The criticism basically the same as "critique".

According to Wiktionary at least, using critic as a synonym for critique is now considered obsolete.
