which camera would produce the best results for macro, using say the Canon 100mm macro and the Canon 65mm 1-5X macro?

Coming from a Macro Addict, those are two of my very favorite lenses!  IMHO if one is going to be shooting super macros, then the crop body would be the better choice due primarily to the crop factor.

However if one is shooting mainly close-ups, then the FF camera would be the better choice due primarily to the higher IQ.

For what I shoot mostly, I would miss the benefits that the crop camera provides.  YMMV of course.

I do have samples from those lenses (on crop bodies) in my galleries...

Good luck,
