So this pruning will cause it to gain height a little slower, but it also shape the bush and encourage new growth at the base to widen the plant correct?

That's correct. If you prune the stems back by even just a few inches you'll force growth lower down on the stems and branches. The one that's really longer than the rest can be cut down to the same level as the others. Best wishes with your rhodies.
