Doing a fresh install of Uplay on a 32-bit Wine setup, I was able to get it to run no problem. However, I'm not entirely sure this will work on a fresh Wine profile, so you may still need to follow some of the guides specified by others. After restarting Uplay once, I was able to download and play games from it. It seems to launch games just fine.
