I received feedback from my tutor saying that my use of “in other words” was hyperbole. My understanding of hyperbole is that it’s exaggerated language. How is “in other words” an exaggeration?

It isn't an exaggeration. Maybe they misused hyperbole because it contains "hyper-" and meant that "in other words" is excessive. In other words, maybe they want you to be more concise, since every time you use that phrase you're just repeating yourself (sort of).
