In the last few months I've read on some blogs that Carlsen's approach in this 2019 is similar to that of AlphaZero. Could there be any truth in this?
Not at all, AlphaZero, LC0 and Stockfish (on an average computer) still around 500 elo over Carlsen.

serpico asked about "approach", not performance (through brute-force calculation).
(But the answer is still no.)
