I've went and done the lives cheat thing and committed Mario suicide like 25 times in the castle and it still hasn't appeared. I'm pretty sure I had it for the first two stars I got on that level though! (I have the 2nd & 3rd stars) Just need that first one as I'm kind of a dunce and missed it the first time around...

If not does anyone know a cheat to get past Bowser?

If you have already completed the level once, and go back and try to complete the level again, the Invincibilty Leaf (the item that gives you the white Tanooki suit) will not appear anymore, no matter how many times you die.

The same goes for P-Wings - if you have already completed a level once, then you will not get to use the P-Wing in that level.

You can get it again you just need to die like 1,000 times. Try it no mater what. It works for me!
