Number 1 is the proper order. In this case, "what kind of person he is" is the noun phrase that defines the object of curiosity.

If you were asking a question about this person, you might say,

"What kind of person is he?"

In this case, the verb comes first because it's a full interrogative sentence, and not just a descriptive phrase.

We could re-write number 2 to include the asking of a question:

He raised my curiosity and made me ask myself, "What kind of person is he?"
