Question about 1999 Hyundai Sonata
Most likely yes. It's not that the cam is out of position (that's controlled by the timing belt, so as long as the belt hasn't slipped, the cam is where it should be). What's more likely is that the cam sensor has gone bad, as you're suggesting, and it's not able to tell the computer the position of the cam, or it's telling the computer that the cam is in a position that the computer knows it can't be.
Replace the cam sensor and you'll be fine.
