While it's possible that the Titans as creators of Erf is canon, what is less certain is that they had any contact at all with the Tools. All we have is hearsay on that last bit.
Hearsay has little value as an argument in this world. The casters are popped with certain knowledge, including, likely, that magical items are made by mortals, and that artifacts are not made by mortals (book 1 p 35). This is necessary knowledge for them to be popped with, and likely is just as true as you getting a bonus if you have eight units in a stack. They're not particularly creative. It's unlikely they would be able to generate specific lies such as that easily. Far more likely, it's standard knowledge for them.
