A catalyst changes the mechanics of a reaction so the activation energy is lower. An inhibitor changes the mechanics of a reaction so the activation is higher. It does not make a difference whether the reaction in question is endothermic or exothermic.

what would that look like on a graph? would the catalyst effect be higher that the normal reaction and the inhibitor be lower than the normal reaction?

The catalyst makes the initial hill (activation energy barrier) lower, while the inhibitor makes that initial hill higher. The starting and ending points on all graphs should remain the same.
