They can blacklist it - preventing it from being activated again, at least on the same carrier. Bricking a phone, to me, is something that possibly happens during the rooting/flashing process, making it unbootable - something completely unrelated to phone service, or whether a carrier will/won't activate a phone. I've never heard the term used in the context of trying to activate a phone.
