    You cannot compare a noun to a verb. – l'électeur Jul 23 '17 at 9:14
  • 退屈する is a verb. – Perico Jul 23 '17 at 10:36

    @Perico You are correct, but 退屈 on its own is just a noun. – ajsmart Aug 7 '17 at 15:02
  • 退屈{たいくつ}(する) to be boring
  • 飽{あ}きる to be come tired of

There certainly is some overlap but not everything that is boring has one become tired of (some things are inherently boring) and not all things that one has become tired of are necessarily boring.
