Given that this discussion has been about intonation, temperament is a different discussion. The use of equal temperament is the same on either steel string guitars or nylon string guitars and isn't a factor in the OP's question of why nylon string guitars sound more out of tune than steel string guitars.

In a broader discussion about tuning a guitar, the choice of temperament is certainly an important consideration.
