How do you set "Allow management of content types?" to "Yes" within a Content Type or List Definition?

This can be done either by setting EnableContentType=true in the list definition or in the feature activation event we can set the attribute. Please refer the below links. They will definitely help you in solving your problem.

Hope it helps!

This says to "toggle the SPList ContentTypesEnabled property from False to True".

EnableContentTypes="TRUE" instead of EnableContentType="TRUE" (note the s)

Go to Library Settings>Advanced settings, then set Allow management of content types? to yes.
