Leading the largest fraction is not enough to be appointed a a chancellor. The fraction has to have the absolute majority in the parliament, otherwise a coalition is necessary.

But Hitler wasn't appointed because NSDAP was the largest fraction. He was appointed by a scared senile president because he was coerced to do that by big business and Franz von Papen, who wanted Hitler to be his puppet. Needless to say, von Papen was an idiot to believe that.
