Your Prometheus config is sending the data to port 8089 -- the main Splunkd port, rather than the prometheusrw port.

The prometheusrw input opens up a new port (8098) that can handle the content-type that Prometheus will send. You need to update your Prometheus configuration to use port 8098 and (in this case) use http and not https.
