What is the best way to confirm all MIMO spatial streams per data sheet are being used by AP? Are there WiFi tools to verify?

If you have a MAC OS you may use the wireless diagnostic tools to capture the packets. If you have windows machine you may use Netmon. These tools are free. 

You will need to get a wireless client to associate to the AP while capturing the packets. After finishing the capture (about 2 minutes), you will need to view the file using Wireshark.

This is an example of the probe response form AP230 5GHz radio. I hope this answer your question.
