I’m out to dinner and am told the aioli is made in house, but uses pasteurized egg. Does this mean it is safe to eat?

Pasteurising heats to quite a high temperature to kill bacteria, but I've never heard of eggs being pasteurised?!
It's what is done to milk. Personally I have eaten hollandaise sauce which heats eggs only to 68deg, but from a cafe I always go to and know has very safe practices.
Totally up to you and what you're comfortable with

If it’s made in house I’d say no. Only way to be sure is if it comes out of a jar.

They said it arrives pasteurized and frozen (in a goon bag style bag), and then they use it with other ingredients to make it.

Yes egg can be pasteurised. If they make it with raw egg I stay away, but if it comes from a packet I eat it. It sounds like it might be ok OP but up to you. If you already ate it don't stress

Completely up to you but, if it helps, my obstetrician told me this week she’s totally fine with me eating runny eggs. She didn’t think I needed to worry too much.

The risk with that would be very low. I’d be comfortable with it, probably.
Equally easy to just avoid it though. I found I didn’t enjoy eating the higher risk foods even when I logically knew the risk was vanishingly small. So for me most of the time it just wasn’t worth it.
