No, Nadal is categorically the best on clay. Nobody comes close to his record on clay.
On grass, there are a few that could be in contention to challenge Federer's status, which is why Fed is NOT categorically the best player ever on grass.
With HC, it's a little hard to tell because the HC at the AO is different to the HC at the USO. At the AO, Fed is clearly not the best ever, especially when it changed to plexicushion.
USO he is also not clearly above every other player that's ever played on the decoturf II.
