If replacing 1 cup = 1.5 cups, does that mean replacing 1tsp = 1.5tsp?
Is it a 1:1.5 ratio?
I am replacing flour with oat flour, and according to a chart, 1 cup of flour is to be replaced by 1.5 cups of oat flour
But the recipe only calls for a tsp, not a whole cup

Correct. The ratio is 1 to 1.5.
So 1 tsp would be 1.5 tsp, 2 cups would be replaced by 3 cups, etc.

Your math is sound, it should be fine to substitute 1 tsp with 1.5 tsp

NO! You are substituting ingredients (Flour for Oat flour) you are not replacing 1 cup of flour with 1.5 cups flour to increase the amount of the recipe.

That little bit will not matter much but you are correct 1 and 1/2 teaspoons would be the replacement.
