You can try to flash CM11 excluding Kernel, leave Stock kernel intact, or flash CM11 excluding kernel and then flash Stock kernel from flashtool, and see if it boot up, but I doubt.

If it not, In this scenario, as you didn't flash custom kernel, just reflash stock Rom and you are fine again and you phone should boot.

Why won't it work. Is it based on the Framework

Its based on the kernel, which you cannot flash with a locked bootloader

I know that. But there must be something stopping it from booting

Yes, the bootloader will not boot an unsigned kernel.
