sup-norm is a theoretical concept.
There is no such function in MATLAB to calculate it for a general function.
In the case above you could use
syms t
f = (1-exp(-t))*heaviside(t);
limit(abs(f),t,Inf)
ans =

I'm not sure if the following is what you want. But this 1st-order transfer function (taking the Laplace transform)
produces the same step response as the given Continuous-Time Signal. So the following computes the -Norm of the linear system, instead of the signal.
Also worth checking out these:
t = linspace(0, 10, 1001);
x = 1 - exp(-t);
G = tf(1, [1 1])
G = 1 ----- s + 1 Continuous-time transfer function.
subplot(211)
plot(t, x), grid on, xlabel('t'), title('Continuous-Time Signal')
subplot(212)
step(G, 10), grid on, xlabel('t'), title('Step Response of Transfer Function')
[ninf,fpeak] = norm(G, inf)
ninf = 1
fpeak = 0
