    May he never lose his confidence

    No 1 is correct. 'Loses' is the indicative of the third person singular use. So you would say 'May he never lose his confidence' or 'He never loses his confidence.' but by starting the sentence with the verb 'May' you change the context.

    Both sentences appear erroneous. It lacks an interrogative sign to an interrogative sentence.

    If it's turned into affirmative, The modal auxiliary MAY needs to be placed after the subject He.

    The first one is correct if it's optative.

    the modal verb "may" requires a "Blind" (naked) infinitive.  An infinitive without the "to" part.  Lose is the naked infinitive form of the infinitive "to lose".  there is no infinitive which is "to loses".
