Probably just sloppy writing. So folks think costume and uniform are the same thing.
According to thesaurus.com, 'costume' and 'uniform' are synonyms. I didn't know this. I also think that this is the most reasonable explanation. Picard, even first-season Jean-Luc, doesn't seem like the type to belittle other countries or civilizations.
Usually you dress up in a costume and pretend you're something you're not. When you put on a uniform its because its what you wear when doing your job.

In universe, Picard is wearing a uniform. In real life, Stewart is wearing a costume.

Dress up as soldier for halloween you're in a costume. Dress up as soldier because you're in the military,you're in a uniform.
