... to the point where a thing you once loved, you're [now] starting to resent and hate.

I do agree that burnout isn't boredom. But people that do get bored of something and push themselves long enough (especially without any kind of break) could burn out, right?

Since he's speaking from experience, this is probably all he meant.

 

yes, thank you!

Going based on this definition

(of a person) in a state of physical or mental collapse caused by overwork or stress.
"she felt burned out, an empty shell"

When you've pushed passed the break of boredom. If I'm playing a video game and get bored of it, I stop playing then come back later. When I get burned out on a video game, I stop playing which could be 20 years before I pick it up again.
