How about braggart? ~ " A vain bragger, one who brags much."
Bullshitter comes to mind, although it is potentially offensive.
You might try Munchausen, after the fictional (and fiction-creating) German Baron. Be careful, though; the word has been taken up by the medical profession to describe somebody who constantly fantasises or lives in a dream world, which is stronger than the original meaning, and probably stronger than you're looking for.
Exaggerator works fine, but if you want something fancier you could try on hyperbolist.
