I've noticed that all armor has an "Optimal Level"
No armor has an "Optimal Level" All armor, however, has an "Optimal Rank."
and then certain classes can equip it. I can't find though if the "Optimal Level" corresponds with the class level or your physical level. Can anyone explain please?
There's no such thing as "class level". It's "class rank." Since class is ranks and physical is levels, "Optimal Rank" obviously must refer to class rank.
Also when it says "Disciplines of Magic and War" under class is that FFXIV way of saying "All Jobs"?

No, when it means "All Classes" it says "All Classes". "Disciplines of Magic and War" excludes Discipline of the Land (gatherers: Botantist, Miner, Fisherman) and Discipline of the Hand (crafters: Goldsmith, Blacksmith, Weaver, Culinarian, Alchemist, Carpenter, Leatherworker).
