I doubt Sampras would have won the French based soley on his having a 2-hander. He did make the semis at one point (losing to eventual champ Kafelnikov). He was also lightning quick in those days, a defenite plus when having to run down shots during those long rallies. I think ultimately his downfall on clay was his fairly flat shots off of his forehand (in comparison to clay court specialists) and his inabilty to become comfortable moving on clay.
