It's self-rewarding behaviour, he enjoys it.
I would leash him and correct him every time he acts too interested, lay down the law NOW that for no reason ever again to cross a certain line even in play. At the same time use some counter conditioning to tell him what you DO want him to do, so if you correct him for jumping at the cat and he settles and looks at you then mark that positively and reward with treats or a toy. You need to instil in him that you are more fun than the cat and if he wants to play then you will indulge him. The more the cat becomes boring the calmer the overall energy of the household will become.
