The final step can be done, but you need to add some other reagents in there. What is the inital product when an amine reacts with a carbonyl?

 

Additionally, there is a possible alteration of your method that will get you from the 2-amino toluene (number 2) all the way to your benzyl alcohol (number 5) in a single step. Think about the position you are trying to oxidise and what reagents are out there to do this transformation (HINT: its a p-block element based reagent)
