On a completely legalistic note, there are actually 2 lineages of the bodhicitta vow. The first has dozens of root, branch, and secondary vows that are highly articulated. The second is much simpler, something to the effect of "I aspire to enlightenment of all sentient beings." Ole gives only the second type. I do not think he ever accepted the first one. He doesn't like rules. I remember him saying, "You don't want to put your bodhicitta in a box." So I don't think he even has that specific bodhicitta vow that you are talking about.
But that's just my guess, and a very legalistic take on the issue.
