he means reverse-angled bridge pickup pickguards for strats. None that i know of. Basically, hendrix played a right handed strat left handed, so the angle of the bridge pickup is the other way round.

i think that the point is he's right handed using a right handed strat and wants the pickup to be at that equivalent angle on a righty strat? although we don't know this for sure.

Well if thats the case he should turn the pick ups upside down.

There'll be very little difference, as pickups are the same forwards and backwards assuming the pole pieces are the same height.

Simply put, the slanted bridge pickup is to add bass to the bassy strings and treble to the trebley strings. So if you reverse the angling then it would be adding treble to the bassy strings and adding bass to the trebly strings. And that tone can be desirable depending upon taste and opinion. Get it now?
