Did the bike shop deform my tire?

I took my tire off my rim to patch a hole created by a screw. I don't have an air compresser so I took it to a bike shop to seat my tire. He said he put extra pressure in the tire to get it to seat and told me to leave it pumped up a day to make sure it gets a good seal. I looked at my tire today and it has streched out to form a large bulge across the tire near where the hole was. 29+ tires are hard to find and aren't cheap. If I keep the tire at around 15psi, it looks alright. Any pressure higher than that and the area that deformed starts to stretch out. I ordered a new tire and hope to get it on at home.
