It is a mecha anime. I believe 4 or 5 robots combine into 1 giant robot.

There are 2 male and 3 female pilots.
The sister of one of the guys, the red head, has disappeared.
The head of the team is a guy that gives grand speeches about everything ... It is hinted in the story that he's either immortal or a time traveler, because some people found a few paintings with his likeness throughout history.

There were 2 seasons that I know of. Had a friend suggest "Aquarion", but this came out before Aquarion did.

Gravion?

It was a horrible Gonzo anime, but I'm pretty sure this one had a "god-like" protag, combining mechas, and two seasons.

The main character, a redhead, is looking for his sister:

The protagonist is Eiji Shigure, a young man who infiltrates Sandman's St. Germain Castle in search of his missing older sister Ayaka

Eiji

The billionaire benefactor (Klein Sandman) who creates the mecha is immortal:

he takes the name and appearance of the actual Klein Sandman, an 18th-century aristocrat. To provide himself the means to prepare for the Zeravire, Sandman genetically suppresses his own G-Factor, giving him immortality and turning his hair purple from its original blond.

The mecha is formed from five units, with three female pilots and two male pilots:

This sounds an awful lot like "Gurren Lagann", it too featured a redhead female and a man called Kamina who made the most outrageous speaches that despite sounding non-sensical often inspired the whole troupe. Kamina wore spicey glasses, and had a brother called Simon.

On of the speeches went along the lines of:

Don't believe in yourself. Believe in me who believes in you Believing in you believing in yourself!

and also:

DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!

Mostly everything else you mention fits with some minor details tweaking.
