Would have worked if he was not told upfront about it. But he mentioned that he was told about going the synthetic oil route. So, I dont see them backing up.

Ofcourse, he could fight back using the car manual (assuming it is mentioned there that mineral oil should be used). This would be contradictory to what they told him (Ford recommends ....).

Anyway, give it a fight. Thats quite some money involved there.

P.S.: It is always better to be aware ourselves than just take the dealer's word as to what the manufacturer recommends.
