Did you find a separate washer used as well or was it just like that? Even getting a aftermarket bolt, it should have been metric. But if you do get a similar one, hope you use a washer and figure out the root cause. This might happen again.
If you are able to re-tap with metric set and it works, then maybe you can go back to original. If not, maybe time for helicoil as the correct fix. Others might have good experience with this.

I only had one instance of the tensioner bolt break on the Corolla but luckily only metric. I had to take it in to get it out due to tools/tight space. Then used a new OEM bolt.

We use thread sealant all the time but that is not the solution to this issue though. If there is wobble, it will start over time and break again.
