The latest iTunes version that works on Leopard is the one you have. Unfortunately if you want to manage the iPhone 5 you have to upgrade at least to Snow Leopard.
In order to do that the Mac must have an Intel processor, because from Snow Leopard onward Apple dropped the support to PowerPC processor.
If your computer is eligible for the upgrade you must call Apple and ask the for a copy of Snow Leopard.

Please don't listen to all of the boring people telling you that "unfortunatley, you need to buy a new upgrade to your old, tired computer, for an extra 100 dollars". No! If the only thing you are worried about is syncing your music to the new iPhone 5, what you need to get is something called "iTunes Match". iTunes Match uploads EVERYTHING in itunes (even CD imports, and "other sources" (aka illegal music. But apple doesn't care)) to iCloud. However, it is $24.99. But hey, it can be purchased directly from your itunes app on your computer. Then you can upload all your songs (up to 25,000) to iCloud. Once thats done, you can sync and download the music from the cloud to your iPod by going into settings, iCloud. BTW you buy it for a "yearly" subscription. That doesn't mean that if you dont re-buy, all your music wil;l be deleted. No. What it means is that you cant upload any more songs to the cloud. All songs previously downloaded will be saved on your ipod, forever . They can even be downloaded to up to 10 other devices! thats enough for your iPad, your moms laptop, your apple TV, and your other devices! Obviously I can't tell you everything here, so check out the official page:

An upgrade to Snow Leopard is $20, not $100.
iTunes Match cannot be used with Leopard:
