There are two views on this. The first is that he utterly loathed Jews since his late teens. That's what he says in his book "Mein Kampf", but there's no reason to trust anything he says. In his book he tries to show himself as the 'saviour of Germany' and so anything that suggests that he changed his ideas looks bad unless he can explain it. The second view (see Ian Kershaw's biography) is that Hitler grew up with the ordinary anti-Jewish prejudices of his time, region and religion (Roman Catholic in Linz and Vienna). According to this view, his prejudices only developed into apparently obsessive hatred at the end of WW1 or even slightly later, when he discovered his talent for making rabble-rousing speeches. The logic of this version of the second view is that his hatred of the Jews was largely opportunistic. (It's possible of course that he fell victim to his own Propaganda).

Hitler believed that the Jews 'stole' WW2 from the Germans. Also, in 1907, Hitler's beloved mother died of breast cancer, the doctor that failed to treat her properly for her illness was a Jew. Another large factor is that Hitler dreamed of being an artist, but was not accepted for a scholarship by a Jewish artist. Therefore, causing Hitler to form a fiery hatred to all Jewish people.
