Our database does not have any information for this engine. What we have is only 1ZZ-FE therefore I am not able to tell if this engine uses hydraulic lifters but for all engine that I have researched on, none seems to utilise hydralic lifters.
I don't believe the dealer can be mistaken but then again who knows. To verify if that is the case, removing the valve cover would allow you to verify if it is hydraulic or shims are utilised.
