[Andre van Berlo] "why exactly would you need 60 or 120 frames/sec to get sharp 4K? "

Try shooting a sharp image at 1/48 with a still camera.

[Andre van Berlo] "Wouldn't faster shutter speeds help?"

Yes, if you want everything to look like the Normandy scene of "Saving Private Ryan"

The only thing that makes 24p watchable is a heavy dose of motion blur.

[Andre van Berlo] "is 4K at 24fps looking better at 1080p vs something shot originally at 1080p at 24fps?"

Most 4K cameras are 4K sensors. That's not ideal in a single bayered sensor. Better to do what Arrir does which is basically a 3K sensor down sampled to 1080. This also applies to HD derived from 4K.
