Is the reflection of a (massive) quantum particle from a mirrored surface considered a Lorentz Boost?? If it is non-collinear ?

First, I'm not sure why you specify a mirrored surface, since you're not talking about light (light has zero rest mass).

Second, I'm not sure what you think a "Lorentz Boost" is. Usually that term denotes a mathematical transformation, not a physical process.
