Lifter problems

Could lifters be damaged by the timing belt being off 2 teeth?
This is the car, my 91 200QT with 59,000 miles, that had the timing belt
changed. It had lousy power, hard to start when hot, and is now making
lifter noises.
I checked the timing marks myself. I set the TDC O on the flywheel and the
timing mark on the outside of the timing belt wheel was off 2 teeth. I then
went to the garage and showed them this myself. They will take it back in
