Did it matter that the Jews could not offer a sin offering during the Babylonian exile?

No because it is the teaching of the bible that the animal sacrifices themselves did not atone for sin. They are the type. It is Jesus as the antitype through which all sins are forgiven, including the sins of those who offered the animal sacrifices. Without his sacrifice repentance would also avail nothing. After the exile the sacrifices were reinstated to prophecy his coming. This was the purpose of all sacrifices from the very beginning.
