I've read quite a few reviews that keep on praising Wes for his "confidence" as a filmmaker.  I've never understood it.  What does that mean exactly?

My guess would be it relates to his steadfast dedication to delivering the film just as he sees it in his head. He has 'confidence' in his unique quirky vision, and doesn't bow to studio pressures to curb said quirkiness. that's my guess anyway.
