If it’s too cold, it may suggest you don’t like him or her. Remember, bosses also have feelings. This applies to all bosses. By cold, I mean "generic." This kind of wish has no personality at all.
Of course, a very personal birthday greeting may imply the opposite: you like your boss too much. Plus, he or she might feel you're getting a little too close for comfort.
