Highly doubtful, but the sensor can become defective and leak. I just doubt it was because of low oil pressure. Sounds like he's trying to fleece you for an oil pump change. Rent or borrow a gauge from a parts store and check your oil pressure.

Not likly no way you have a oil leak. They may have to put dye in and then they check it with a black light to find it.
