Not sure if this helps (it does not answer your question directly):

There are two places in org-sort-entries-or-items (which is called by
org-sort under the conditions at hand) where a regexp, org-ts-regexp, is
used when sorting-type is selected to be ?t: one is for when you are
sorting plain lists and the other is when you are sorting top-level
entries or the active region. If you change the relevant instance of
org-ts-regexp to org-ts-regexp-both, it will match both active and
inactive timestamps and sort appropriately. I have not tried to figure
out what happens if there are multiple timestamps, active or inactive,
in an entry. But if you just have a single inactive timestamp per entry,
as you have indicated above, that should work.
