Yeah he may have been worried about his legacy. Instead of being remembered as being involved in war as his last dance - he probably wanted to go out with credit for ensuring European peace.

I was thinking more that illness can affect one's view. I'm sure Chamberlain meant well. It is just that he utterly misjudged what was needed and 50-million people died as a result.
