In the same way that an illusionist is a master of deception, I’m thinking it could be handy to have a word that means master of self-deception. I nominate delusionist for this purpose. For example,

“After eight failed marriages, he still talked of one day finding his ‘soul-mate’. The guy’s a delusionist.”
