have a property in your form declaration for the number of times the button is clicked.  Set this to 0 at the start.  In the OnClick event of the button, increment this counter.  If the counter is 5 then disable.  E.G.

TMyForm = class(TForm)
  btn1: TButton;
private
  count: integer;
end;

procedure TMyForm.btn1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  inc(count);
  if count = 5 then
    btn1.Enabled := false;
end;

initialization
  count := 0;
