To get a 4-pole high-pass filter response you have to take a weighted
sum of all 4 stage outputs plus the original input. This produces a
fairly decent high-pass response provided you use very tight tolerance
resistors to get exactly the right mixing ratios for the five signals.
The reason why you can't get a 4-pole high-pass response by just
subtracting a 4-pole low-pass response from the original input, is
because of the phase-shift introduced by each stage. You can use that
simple approach for a 1st order filter, and even for a 2nd order filter
with the right Q factor, but for higher order filters it gets more
complicated.
