Quote Yet those who do not believe will say he made the Quran up.
I'd say there are more possibilities. Clearly, the Quran is man made, but I would not suspect Muhammad of having it "freely invented".
I would guess it was more of a religious ecstasy. There have been many cases of this kind in history  like these ones for example. (The case of Saint Francis of Assisi is particularly inspiring)

Joseph Smith (yeah, the Mormons) belongs to the same category:
Mysteriously sounding but substanceless messages (sure, directly from God), the "capturing" and reinterpretation of (a) dominant, widespread religion, an (of course)  "altruistic attitude" towards (many) woman, military action and the absolute will to seize political power, the claim to hold the ultimate truth and the inability to coordinate his own succession.
  
The list of similarities is long and I could produce many more cases of this kind if you'd ask me.
