I used warm water with dish soap (really diluted) and got most of it off, but there are still some "shiny" spots on the seats and steering wheel and it still feels oily. Do I keep using the soap water and then treat the leather with my usual cleaner/conditioner?
I bolded some of your mistakes... good luck.

Its annoying but it wears off after a bit. I let my dad wash my car once and he did this. Felt like I was sliding around my seat for a couple days but it eventually went away

Any sort of alcohol I would think would be terrible on leather, as it is a drying agent. It will suck the moisture right out of the leather.

Dish soap will do the same thing, dry out your leather. It will take off the Armor All just as much as the oils that keep your leather supple.

Yeah, I've never personally used Armor All on leather, but nothing in it should be harmful to the leather, from a chemical standpoint. The silicone in it will supposedly attract more dirt, but I'm not sure of that.
