It could absolutely be a clogged fuel filter. your symptoms are actually pretty common for that. i'd say it's a safe bet to start there.

The oil could be from the sputtering. You should change your fuel filter first and see if it starts.

If the cat was mounted after the exaust mani. it would'nt be much of a problem. Sense you have the exhaust mani. cat. it could cause a problem being it is so close to the head. What you could do for now( before you get a new one and you are sure its clogged) is remove it from your car and hollow it out. This is illegal in most areas so get a new one right away. Also watch out because if cold air gets in your head when the engine is hot it can wrap your head. But still change the fuel filter first.
