How should this have been handled?
The code address this problem and the summary of it is this. "It depends". It seems from your description replaying the point was the right thing to do.

the code:

12. Out calls corrected. If a player mistakenly calls a ball “out” and then
realizes it was good, the point shall be replayed if the player returned the ball
within the proper court. Nonetheless, if the player’s return of the ball results
in a “weak sitter,” the player should give the opponent the point. If the player
failed to make the return, the opponent wins the point. If the mistake was
made on the second serve, the server is entitled to two serves
"You should be playing linebacker, not singles."
