Update: if anyone else has the broken bolt issue in the future, it does appear that it can be dealt with by grinding the nut off. I cut it off slicer disc, ground it flush, and tapped the broken piece of bolt out. Tomorrow I'll put in a conventional nut and bolt and that should get be back to a normal setup and I'll be able to put this belt tensioning job behind me.
