Is it possible for a hub to go out of alignment. Its an ultegra rear hub, and is seems to be moving about 1mm about the spin axis. Is this possible or is it just my eyes. And if it is, is it fixable, or do you just have to replace it. Is it even safe!? to ride this.

Bent axle? Hub properly adjusted? Have you spun the hub in the bike frame and held some fixed object (screwdriver) next to the flange to see if this is the case? Is it the cassette or the hub flanges you're looking at? You really don't see aluminum hub bodies get "bent" so I'd check these other possibilities first.
