Does the WoW Machinima Tool count as a hack and is it safe to use on live servers or is this a bannable offense? Looking for some straight forward answers since I can't seem to get any else where (Would love a Blue to clarify this for me).

They won't, and probably never will.
Because as with any third-party software, even if it's perfectly fine now, either the program or the rules could change, and said confirmation could come back to bite Blizzard in the bottom months or years down the road.
Based on what I'm seeing of this program, here's my (non-Blizzard) opinion:
tl;dr: If you use it for making machinima, you'll probably be fine. If you use it for other things (such as using a "free" camera to "scout" things you shouldn't be), you won't be.

Blizzard did have a Machinima policy on the old website, but it does not seem to have transitioned to the new website. Here it is archived -

Make sure you send the email from your battle.net account email. While I do not know about specifically on that email, in general the only emails that are considered are ones that are associated with a valid battle.net account, the rest are dismissed.
