それからの数日間で、僕は何度「東京って怖え」と呟いただろうか。何度舌打ちを浴び、何度冷や汗をかき、何度恥ずかしさ赤くなっただろうか。

Hi. Does the に in red mean “because”? If so, can we replace the underlined part with 恥ずかしくて, 恥ずかしさので, or 恥ずかしさから to mean the same thing?
Thank you.

Yes, に indicates the cause/reason like "because of" there.

can we replace the underlined part with 恥ずかしくて, 恥ずかしさので, or 恥ずかしさから to mean the same thing?
The first and third one are OK, but the second one should be 恥ずかしさで (の is unnecessary).
