Listening to this a couple of times to me its a case of Pilot in Command.
Though someone perhaps could/should have told someone about starting full length to save the full explain "on-air".
Sounds to me like just a misunderstanding between the pilot and the controller. She couldn't see that the pilot was in position due to him not going up to the full power area. He assumed she was getting on him because he didn't do that, instead of offering an explanation he went off on her about flying the damn plane himself.
The controller remained calm, and simply explained her position and I have a feeling the pilot felt bad for blowing up on her when he realized she couldn't see him on the runway. This happens, we all work crazy hours, have different stresses put on us, and sometimes one side or the other blows up, reference a lot of the JFK recordings! Usually, anytime I let out a little more aggression on the frequency then I intend it gets the point across. But, it is always best to try to get everything explained prior to going off on a pilot, to make sure you are in the right to do so. This pilot should have asked for an explanation of why his takeoff clearance was canceled in the first place, and he probably would have calmed down.
I bet next time he flies out he will either say "we are going to start takeoff roll from full length" or he will taxi to where apparently every other plane departs from.
