The intended implication was clearly that he was viewing a historical holoprogram in the last episode. I'm not sure why so many people think it means the whole series was fictitious (in-universe, of course).
The reason Enterprise died was pretty simple. After 14 years of continuous Trek, people needed a break from the franchise. When Enterprise's first season didn't impress them, they decided to leave.
If Enterprise had come out a few years later than it did, people probably would have given it the same chance they gave TNG, DS9, and VOY when each respective series had less-than-impressive first seasons.
