How can I keep my boyfriend from feeling inferior?

Have you talked with him about this? It may be that he's okay with it.
My gf just got a great new job and is going to be making a heck of a lot more than me, and my finances aren't great, so I can relate. It's... it's kind of weird? I'm getting used to the idea, though. I'm certainly not feeling inferior in any way, tho! You might make sure you compliment him on a regular basis - on non-financial things. Like how awesome in bed he is. How safe you feel in his arms. How comfortable he makes your apartment feel (etc). How awesome he looks in this pair of sexy new underwear you just bought for him. How glad you are of his emotional support when you have a hard day.
Practice complimenting ;) It's hard to brood on making less money when you're thinking about how awesome you are at something else.
(for the record, he should practice complimenting you too - it's good for people to be reminded how awesome they are)
For some guys they may be focused so much on making money that they feel inferior, but I think most guys will be okay if they feel awesome in other parts of their life. I wouldn't worry about him cheating quite yet.
