In this case I would say no. It did not bend the valves.

How do you loosen the belt on the air conditioner?

Only older V-belts can be loosened. First loosen the lock bolt. Now, turn the tensioner bolt counter clockwise. When proper tension has been reach, re-tighten the lock bolt. On newer cars with an automatic tensioner, the tension will be correct unless the spring in the tensioner is broken. That would cause the belt to be too loose and the tensioner will need to be replaced.

The belt tensioner on your 95 escort pushes the belt to close to the power steering pump the new tensioner does the same thing why?

either the tensioner (spring loaded to keep the belt tight) has a bad spring (and you will see a broken spring) or it's installed incorrectly after replacing it. Compare belts (old/new) which should be a few inches different.
