Either that is wrong or the in game tooltip is wrong.
Just did a quick test dummy test. Even with in combat regen I go oom in about 9 casts from a full bar.
Recalculating based on 60,000 mana (20% of base)
20 - (6.25*1.5) = 20 - 9.375
= 10.625% mana per cast (normalized regen)
Which is, as you correctly state, ~9 casts
At 1.5 seconds each, that is 13.5 seconds of movement.
So you'll have to be moving for 13.5 straight seconds in order to oom yourself completely.
13.5 seconds of Fel flame (on my toon right now), generates ~1 full ember. This is not taking into consideration weaving in conflags. Even when stripping myself of gear (reduces crit) I can still generate a full ember from spamming fel flame.
This means that even after a full fel flame spam, you can get off a chaos bolt.
So I don't see what your issue is?
Though this is pretty woefully off topic now.
N.b. The 3 seconds it takes for you to deploy the chaos bolt from the fel flame spam, you will have regenerated 12.5% mana (37,500 mana).
A conflaged incinerate costs 30k.
So you'll be fine on mana.
