The more wide open you shoot your portrait, the less chance you have of having the whole face being in focus. Crop cameras increase DoF already, so using f1.4 on a crop will give you better face focus than F1.4 on FF. Your background may look better with FF, but your subject may not look as good if you can't nail the focus at those wide apertures.

That's not a very good argument for using a crop sensor. Increasing DOF is as easy as stopping down. Decreasing it gets tricky when you are limited by the framing of a crop.
