I'm not sure what version of org I was using at the time (2014), but
knew I'd done this. This might not be exactly what you wanted, but I
just used landscape instead of sideways table and know it worked:

#+latex: \begin{landscape}
#+latex: \tiny
#+attr_latex: :align llll|llllll|lllllll|lll :env longtable
| table | goes | here |
#+latex: \end{landscape}

Like I said, that was old, so some of the syntax would be different
(like #+begin_export latex / #+end_export) but it's what I had on hand
to send quick!
