As you body was not wired for oil level sensor you can ignore that sensor, you most likely missed connection somewhere during the R&R. Look closely. Could be a harness connection.

Yes that level sensor should not keep your engine from firing.

so more than likely my car has been wired incorrectly

Not necessarily, it maybe just a missed circuit, or a component could have failed during the exchange. Has anyone checked the engine control computer for codes? That might just lead you to the problem, but double check all of the electrical connections, make sure everything it hooked up to where it is supposed to be.
