Thank you for your question. It is polytheism if the person sees Imam Ali (as) as an independent source of help from God.

No Forms nor manifestations of God :

Islam is the pure message from the One Creator Allah (SWT) for all
people to make them know that there is no god but Allah (SWT) and no
one has the right to suggest any form or manifestation for God.

Allah (SWT) does not need people to suggest forms or manifestations
for Him. In fact the Holy Qur’an is very clear against these so called
forms and manifestations because it leads to polytheism. Allah (SWT)
ordered people to worship him without their imagination or forms or
manifestations and those who create what they claim to be forms or
manifestations are away from Allah (SWT). When they are being told to
worship Allah (SWT) only and not others, they say : “We in fact
worship them to get proximity to Allah (SWT) (ما نعبدهم  الا ليقربونا الى الله زلفى).

(Sura 39, Verse 3)

Islam being the final and ever-lasting message from Allah (SWT) does
not accept any claim of any forms or manifestations of God and deals with it
as a type of Shirk (Polytheism)  which is the most dangerous major sin.

 Wassalaam.

Thank you for your question. The problem with such religions is their specification of certain manifestations of God and then what their beliefs about those manifestations are. In Islamic mysticism the issue of manifestation has been discussed at length and an absolute lower boundary to understand manifestation is that it should not result in idolatry, which is exactly what the specification of forms to which people direct worship is. Monotheism is not only the specification of one God, but the unity and unlimited nature of God and His being above any material being.

May you always be successful.
