I don't see how inodes are relevant to this, and NTFS does have their
equivalent internally.

Symlinks redirect a reference to a file, so they can be used to trick
an application to access a file in a completely different place in the
filesystem.  Whether this does or doesn't present a vulnerability is a
matter of expert opinion, and I'm not an expert, but I think the
important factor here is the very different security models between
Posix and Windows, and that has nothing to do with inodes (AFAIU).
