a clogged cat can cause all of these symptoms, including exhaust leaks pre cat. It can also cause much more expensive engine damage, especially if its driven while its clogged.

you could be relatively lucky if the starter drive gear did not retract and caused the started to fail. (they usually come apart inside and get jammed when spun at speeds well above cranking speed) This would probably be much less expensive to fix and less harmful for the engine.
