Hive ODBC Driver 2.1.7 (located in Hortonworks Public Repo http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDP/hive-odbc/2.1.7.1010) should have fixed this issue as per the release notes:

New installation location for macOS

On macOS, the driver now installs to /Library/hortonworks/hive. Previously, the driver installed to /opt/hortonworks/hive.
