Does running the ac in extreme hot weather cause engine to overheat?
If coolant is up to proper level and cooling fans are working - should not overheat
Clutch slippage can cause an engine to overheat by running the engine at higher rpm's than what it is recommended for the motor. Excessive heat in the engine can cause the head gaskets to leak building up heat in the motor. There are inexpensive kits to test whether your headgasket is leaking or not.
If there is a leak in the oil cooler lines could that be one of the main reasons why some vehicles especially in warm-hot weather or long distance travel to overheat?

I wanted to know why the truck did not overheat. Running on I95 for 65 miles at approx 60 mph. As long as the water pump is being powered by another belt it will not overheat.

Eventually the battery will loose all it's charge and the engine will stop running but a broken alternator belt will not cause it to overheat…
antifreeze does two things. It keeps the water in the radiator from freezing in the winter, and helps prevent if from boiling over and evaporating in the summer. You can run your vehicle with water alone in moderate temperatures and it will do the job. But, if you mean by "running out of antifreeze" you mean there is no liquid in the radiator, then yes, your vehicle can overheat and ruin the engine.
It is very important the you precisely follow the directions in the owner's guide for the particular ski you are using. You can overheat the engine, melt parts of the exhaust system, damage driveline components, or worse. For most jet skis, they can be run for 30 seconds or so without any special requirements. To run for longer, you generally have to connect them to a running water hose to provide engine and exhaust cooling…
