I cut the pipe that connects to my bathtub overflow about 1/2 an inch too tall. However, I was able to fit it in place by pulling the PVC forward a few degrees. Can the glued joints of the PVC handle a bit of strain?

If you can reach it now it's best that you make it right may not ever be an issue, but, it could be at some point and if your asking , it would put your mind at ease if you corrected it

I can’t picture what you did, but if you forced the pipe to bend or deflect, you might have affected the correct slope for drainage.
