- I want to refute his logic.
is probably the best terminology to use. It means that you want to show that his reasoning is logically faulty.

"Yes" to your first question; and "I want to confound his logic" could be a possible answer to your second question.

Fault his logic.

This is kind of a hard one.
You can't 'break' logic. I mean, I know what you mean when you say it, but technically it doesn't make sense.
To 'disprove' logic is better, but logic can't really be proven or disproven. Again, I'm totally sure what you're saying, so it's okay to say that. But it's wrong. (I'm being a jerk, aren't I?)
The purpose of language is to transmit meaning, and both these words work for that even if they're not perfectly suited, they're 'inelegant'.
I would say 'discredit'. 'Credit' means to believe, to have faith in. You are saying the logic is not creditable, that people shouldn't believe it or have faith in it, and you are going to show why they shouldn't. 'Debunk' might also be a good word.
