Is there a job in game development that is equivalent to being a movie director?

As Almo says, roles within game development vary quite widely from studio to studio, or sometimes even between projects for a single team. But there are common patterns.

I think the closest equivalent here would be termed a Creative Director:

The creative director is responsible for the overall vision of the product: game play, visual style, story, audio assets, cinematics, and marketing materials. This person is often the creator of the game concept, and may serve as the primary designer. He or she works under the supervision of the producer and is tasked with managing the teams of artists, designers, and programmers, interacting directly with senior supervisors of each department.
