It will help to cool the person but it will not of its self break the fever, that is done by the persons' immune system (perhaps with the aid of medical drugs).

What does it mean when a rabbits ears get hot?

it means that they are either getting scared or angry. or even meaning they want to be left alone. If your rabbits ears are hot it is either over heated (too hot and trying to cool it's self off by circulating the blood thru the large veins in it's ears) or it has a fever. If it is too hot you can help it cool off by putting a cool cloth on it's ears and a frozen coke bottle in it's cage for it to lie down beside. If it has a fever you should check it over for source of infection or take to vet.
