You can't log out. Especially if it is the email used for your Microsoft Account.

Go to Settings > email + accounts > tap the Hotmail Account name > for "Download new content" tap the field and select "manually." Now it wo't access data until you tell it to.

When you want to sync... Go to Settings > email + accounts > hold down on the Hotmail Account name > tap "sync" from the pop up menu that appears.
