I’ve had tight quads and hips for quite some time as a result of oly lifting combined with a 60 hour a week desk job.

Sounds like you need to see a doctor.
There doesn’t have to be pain for something to need attention.
Pain is a lagging indicator.
Sounds like you identified the root cause of your back pain.
Sounds actually like you tore some kind of adhesion! If your movement is better and your back pain is better, hang tough and see what happens with the point tenderness. And don’t get so tight. You CANNOT oly and sit.
I feel a lot of tearing in my “grundle region” if I squeeze my rumble roller between my legs or if I’m doing dynamic stretches over a hurdle or a lowered Oly bar. Always feel better afterward which means my groin and adductors were probably just tight and stiff. Also the psoas connects to the lumbar spine so a tight psoas can cause lower back pain from lack of hip flexion.
Hence why my lower back hates me after deadlift or box jumps.
Thanks for all the replies, here’s an update:
So how do you folks know how much pain is too much? How do we avoid tears with aggressive stretches like these?
The same thing happened to me yesterday doing the exact same stretch. I felt a weird sensation around my hips (as if something had been moved out of place) and fell out of the stretch immediately. I feel pain when I tense my glutes or get into a lunge position. I spend a lot of my time sitting and also have tight IT band, quads and hip flexors. Could this be the same thing or have I just strained something?
