Is there a tool that I can run on ESX 4.1 servers to identify security vulnerabilities and whether the config aligns with best practices?

Sorry "ENTPF"...VMware doesn't have anything like that, that I'm aware of. The only publications I'm aware of are below:
http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-12306
and
http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1008166

This information is for 4.0.  Is it the same or different for 4.1?

Good Guide, but for older version of ESX/i ...not vSphere (4.x and above). Nevertheless, still a good resource.
