Questions: When installing the bolt into the master cylinder, does there need to be any thread sealant applied? Also, how many crush washers are used and in what locations pertaining to the master cylinder?

You do not need to use any sealant for the master cylinder. Below is a good diagram on where parts go and the amounts for around the master cylinder. All the parts are clickable so if you click on a part - it'll give you more information.

Questions: When replacing my master cylinder on a CJ2A, I installed a new brake light switch into a new outlet bolt, using new washers, and a new Y-joint, but brake fluid is leaking from where the switch screws into the outlet bolt. As I continue to tighten it, it continues to leak. How tight should the switch be? Does the switch seat into the bolt? Is there a chance that I will over-tighten it (or already have done so)? Thanks.

It should be very tight. I would check your threads. You really need to make sure that you do not have any leaks there.

You shouldn't have to. Make sure you use the original or new crush washers against your fitting when installing.
