To me, the swing path in that video is definitely not OTT, perhaps even a little to the right, so it's a matter of getting that club face less open at impact is all.
Correct, slice doesn't necessarily mean over the top, face is just right of the path. Going with that, "over the top" doesn't necessarily result in bad shot. There are pros that consistently have a path to the left. What screws up a lot of amateurs of how they get the path across the ball, which is usually due to releasing the wrist angles too soon. We want a flat left wrist at impact, if the wrist begins to dorsi flex (cup) too soon the path will rotate to the left, across the ball. Obviously the pros that have the left ward path aren't doing it that way But that's another conversation and not something I would recommend to most players. If you want to hit fades, just adjust the path by aiming more to the left.
For your swing Tim and sticking with push draws, I'd recommend feeling like the club face stays "looking" at the ball longer on the takeaway. The face is rolling open way too fast creating sequencing issues. Compare your pics to the ones below. With less face rotation it will be easier for you to hit the ball more solid because you'll have to do less work to "save" the shot. Also on the downswing I think adding some more pressure into your left foot would be great. Work on those separately.
