That fit looks pretty good to me too. We can become obsessed with tiny details when working on a project that no one would EVER notice in a finished project.
That said, if you need the perfect fit, you can make the inlay piece slightly conical (a degree or two) with a chisel ot by sanding carefully. If you do it right it will just give you the tiny gap on the bottom instead of on the top. Structurally it will be just as good.
