I haven't heard that one before, but I have heard of tire shops not liking the job of cleaning up the goop inside the tire.
But yeah, the TPMS sensor may need to be replaced.
This is exactly why I don't like it when cars include slime instead of a spare. If I were in that boat, I'd have personally tried to overinflate the tire w/a regular air pump and limp along until I could get it patched (done this numerous times). But, that won't work if there's a huge leak.
I really wish Nissan would include a spare or make it an optional accessory along w/the mounting hardware, like what's on Australian Leafs.
