I'm pretty sure that one has very little if anything to do with the other. I was playing FF Dissidia and noticed on the character selection screen they have a brief description of the character's playstyle with a title. Golbez from FFIV is described as Thaumaturge. When looking it up on wiki here is the description::

In battle, Golbez is a Thaumaturge, and uses a unique fighting style consisting of two-part attacks. Golbez's Brave attacks have him fling out his hand to summon the CPU and its nodes and waves of energy to attack, letting him hit at both close and long ranges. This way of attacking allows players to chain Golbez's attacks together depending on their timing. One slight drawback is using his attacks to strike from a distance makes them more readable and relatively easy to dodge. Though they can hit at long-range, Golbez needs to be very close to his opponent to strike using the physical parts of his attacks, and the ranged parts of his attacks still have a low range compared to some of the other magical fighters.

Like I said, it most likely has nothing to do with the class from FFXIV, but I found it interesting and thought that if they were similiar it would make for a very fun and usefull class.
The more I train, the harder I get. The harder I get, the more lethal I am. The more lethal I am, the fewer opponents. The fewer opponents, the less to lose. The less to lose, the more I let up. The more I let up, the more room for mistakes. The more room for mistakes, the more I train.

If you've played the game, I think it might give you an indication of the style of the class that they're going for.

Personally, I loved Dissidia, and recommend it to anyone who's a fan of the series. Never played online though.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.
