It looks more as he was both amused and disgusted by this manifestation of a personality cult, which we have seen in an even more extreme form with leaders like Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin. That's what comes of the idea that the state is manifested in the person of the supreme leader; sinister as well as absurd, and even worse when that ruler was really a powerful monarch rather than the ruler of some German mini-state who modelled himself on him.
All in all, I don't think its right to draw parallels between him and Hitler just on the basis of waging wars. The two personality cults were rather different in nature. Louis XIV doesn't seem to be nearly so illogically and anachronusly motivated by personal prejudices as Hitler. His personality cult was, IMHO, more like that of Stalin's. Both wanted to be viewed as supreme managers of their realms.
