Question: Why exactly does Carter hide from Lee behind the street post, when they are going to tell the FBI to pull their men out of the building, that the kidnapper is supposedly in?

Answer: Because he doesn't believe that Lee is right. He thinks that he's just going to annoy the FBI and so he doesn't want to be seen to be involved.

roboc

Answer: I don't think he hides because of Lee being wrong. His assignment is to keep Lee away from the investigation and by going along with him he wouldn't be following his orders that he was supposed to.
