Apparently not.

I've never lit (or relit) the pilot light in the hot water heater (I didn't even know it has a pilot light!), only the furnace.

Are you sure the plumbing is done correctly? Maybe you are drawing hot water only from a furnace (or boiler) tankless coil and the stand alone water heater in the crawl space is not sending any water anywhere. THen when the furnace quits, no hot water.
The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.

I looked up the "furnace" model number, and it's actually a boiler. So if you have a domestic hot water coil in the boiler providing your hot water, that would explain why you get no hot water when the boiler pilot is out.
