Is this a newly planted tree? It sounds more like heat stress, than a disease problem. Maples are sensitive to hot drying winds and drought conditions. Is it located in an area where it is protected from hot winds and receives some afternoon shade? A disease would have different symptoms, such as yellowing leaves with spots, a bacterial infection would be obvious in it has a distinct smell, and sometimes turns black or have an oily appearance. If there are more symptoms other than the ones you mentioned above, then let us know. Good luck.
