You could try some liquid metal repair, usually 2 part compound mixed together, once set can be machined, filed, drilled and taped. In the UK there's a product called Devcon 62345 plastic steel apoxy. If you use enough just fill the damaged area you should be able to smooth it back with grit paper. I've used this product many times during my engineering career. Give it a go you've nothing to loose.

It sounds like you've fixed it, as I mentioned earlier I was pretty sure filling in the gouged area would do the trick. I've fitted 100s of oil seals in my working life and if ever the outside of where the seal fits is damaged I've always experienced leakage, it doesn't matter how good the seal fits round the shaft oil will always find a way out through a damaged area. So providing the product you used is suitable for repairing damaged metals you should be good to go.
