Sounds like a duplicate of bug #21732.

What does pos-visible-in-window-p return for that buffer position?

That's not relevant: 619194 is a buffer position, whereas -14 is the
y-coordinate (in pixels) passed by posn-at-point to posn-at-x-y. The
latter cannot cope with negative y coordinates, for reasons that
should be obvious.
The question is how that -14 coordinate came into existence. If you
can step with a debugger into Fpos_visible_in_window_p, and see what's
going on there, that would be helpful. (I cannot try that myself, as
my systems don't support pdf-view-mode.)
