It is harder for tor to bootstrap when it is reinstalled, or when it has been
off for a while, because it needs to download more data.

It looks like Tor never bootstraps, so systemd restarts it.
You can confirm by checking your systemd logs.

Is your network connection fast and reliable enough?

Tor needs a lot of connections.
Does your pi support 6000 simultaneous connections?
Does your router support 12,000 simultaneous connections?
Most home routers don't.

I need to see what happens between log lines like this:

Feb 16 23:37:49.000 [notice] Bootstrapped 0%: Starting
Feb 16 23:43:45.000 [notice] Tor (git-a211f886ad759cab) opening log file.
