Hmmm... I'm sure John would perhaps recognize the similarity, but I doubt he'd think twice about it. I also doubt he was trying to trick anyone by placing a theme that sounds like hook in the movie. Melodies have a bit of life of their own. It would be hard to hear that melody once playing that first triplet figure to go anywhere else. Melodies don't just go anywhere, at least not in a piece such as this. Then again, its only the beginning that share a similar structure, they change quickly. Even from the second note we have a diffence, Williams opens hook with a rising perfect 4th, which sounds much more heroic than the minor 6th that is played in AotC. Also, the way they are played/orchestrated/arranged is quite different. The meter is different. Aside from the similar interval relationship near the beginning the themes in their entirity are very different.
