wg doesn't use TLS libraries at all, so the issue is somewhere else.
Have you checked that the PSK is the same on both ends ?

Which kernel version are you using ?

Enabling debug logs on both ends may shed some light on what is
going on. On OpenBSD, enable using the command:
  ifconfig wgX debug
To disable:
  ifconfig wgX -debug

On Ubuntu, enable using:
  echo 'module wireguard +p' > /sys/kernel/debug/dynamic_debug/control

and disable with:
  echo 'module wireguard -p' > /sys/kernel/debug/dynamic_debug/control
