No. It doesn't.
Your example just said that debt can hurt you in that scenario if it means taking in less debt.

The irony of him paying down debt due to his fears of hyperinflation is that it is the absolute opposite of what you would want to do in that situation.
Being a net debtor is optimal in hyper inflation.
