Germany did not run out of infantry in WWII. It lost the war because of decisions made at the High Command level. The decision to start a war with the Soviet Union before finishing off Britain is widely held as one of the key mistakes that doomed Germany. By allowing Britain to remain and then starting a war on a thousand mile front, it drained resources and split the German forces.

The German infantyman was superior to any other on the battlefield until late 1943. By that time the drain of a two front war had forced the Army especially into a defensive battle against a country that could afford to sacrifice territory and men for time.
