I know nothing about this stuff. Is this test focused on the two coefficients that were specified? It sounds as if the reviewer were just saying "Why are these so different?", which could be a reasonable question.

Under the null of Y2 being exogenous, both the OLS and 2SLS estimator are consistent and tend to the same probability limit, else the OLS is inconsistent and the probability limits of the two estimators diverge. The Hausman test is a formal tests of this convergence under the null.
