Rhino's splines and booleans are good. Max's aren't.

If you want to have better control of poly density avoid scaling your splines' vertex handles and use a low interpolation value.

If I were you I'd just poly model this and avoid splines altogether.

This is a bitch to do in Max, Normalize spline will give you a more even distribution or verts :

Then you can use QuadCap Pro for the flat surfaces:

I'll try do a capture of the process later, I'm half cut at the mo'

edit: and as herfstr1 siad, your interpolatrion is way too high, crank it down.
