As a gate agent for an airline, would it be offensive to say boarding group "A" as in Allah?

Any word choice can be offensive to someone.

It would certainly be offensive to many people. It would also be very strange, when there's a perfectly good international alphabet that's used by air crews all around the world.
Call 'A for alpha' and don't be provocative. Airports are not the place to be witty.

Go with NATO phonetic alphabet. If you say "A" as in Allah; "B" as in Buddhist and "C" as in Christian, someone may think you are either super-religious or weird.

It would be very weird and pretty questionable
Just use 'A for Alpha' as per the standard NATO phonetic alphabet

It is inappropriate to inject your religious beliefs into business relations, in public especially. I'm not all offended by it, it's just inapprpriate. ANY religion, not just yours.

Probably, apple or alpha would probably be more appropriate.
