I'd call someone like that a moraliser...
moralise/moralize - to reflect on or express opinions about something in terms of right and wrong, especially in a self-righteous or tiresome way.
...or perhaps a prescriptivist...
prescriptive - making or giving injunctions, directions, laws, or rules.
Most other words in this general area (conformist, traditionalist, conservative, etc.) are usually used to mean a person who wants to be like others, rather than wants others to be like him.
I would go for missionary and proselytizer
a person strongly in favor of a program, set of principles, etc., who attempts to persuade or convert others.
to convert or attempt to convert as a proselyte; recruit.
Another word is control freak (although this can be applied in a different context as well, and is rather informal)
a person having a strong need for control over people or situations.
How about indoctinator?
An indoctrinator is one who indoctinates.
indoctrinate: to instruct in a doctrine, principle, ideology, etc., especially to imbue with a specific partisan or biased belief or point of view.
Indoctrinators want others to believe and do as they do (beliefs being habits of action).
