Well, my personal opinion on the subject (although I might be wrong, I specialize in the Inner Senshi not the outers) is that the leadership changed as the team grew.
At first when it was just Uranus and Neptune Amara was in change. Although Michelle was the first outer Senshi Amara was definitly the leader. The best example I can give is during the Birthday Blues episode. Michelle askes Amara if they really have to take 'moonface's' heart crystal. Also Michelle just seems to defer to Amara. Amara just seems to be the dominat personality in the relationship.
Then when Trista shows up she immediatly takes control. The other Outers recoginise her as a women of great power and wisdom. So they immediatly defer to her on situations, they start following her lead.
Based entirly on body language and my own gut feeling however I'd say that Hotaru is the total leader of the Outer Senshi. Her strengh alone is unmatched my any except maybe Sailor Moon. Also she just seems to have total confidence in herself. (As Sailor Saturn, as Hotaru she doesn't apear very confident in herself) These traits and my gut which has never steared me wrong before lead me to believe that Sailor Saturn is the overall leader of the Outer Senshi.

It's next to the "start new thread" option...
I haven't seen the episodes where Sailor Saturn is in the show more, so I don't really know what her character is like, so really... I can't totally make a comment... I always thought that Pluto was the leader but oh well...
