The man was most exhausted.
Exhaustion already is the most form of tiredness, being binary rather than analogue in nature, so you use the adverb most to accentuate its superlative nature.

In a sense, exhausted already adds an emphasis on the idea of tired. Adding syrup to a pancake with syrup isn't adding bonus info, just like "very exhausted" is akin to "very very tired", which sounds superfluous. So, exhausted is an implied emphasis.

Or "thoroughly exhausted."
or "the man was utterly spent."

I'm not going to say there's no use for very, however, because if you're trying to write realistic dialogue it might well be that your character would use the word very.
ex: "Why did you go to sleep fully dressed?"
"I was tired."
"...and in the bathtub?"
"I was very tired "

One of the easiest recognisable distinctions between a person with a hat, and a person with a hat and autism, is that the one with autism will call everything with a pinched crown a fedora and wear it indiscriminately of whether or not it fits the outfit.

I don't think any less of people for not having an extensive vocabulary either, but people do think less of me when I use mine. Most seem to get the impression that I am trying to show off, when in fact I'm just trying to get my point across in a clear manner. I got the **** beat out of me when I was a kid every time I tried to speak because my dad thought that since I was younger than him I couldn't be smarter. I have found that given the opportunity, almost everyone I meet would do the same.
