If a 14 y/o old girl wearing a T-shirt that says “Boy’s Lie,” thinks the apostrophe is correct, is she dumb, or too young to understand?

Not dumb or too young ... just not well educated.

Odds are she's not smart enough to recognize that as a misuse of an apostrophe.

The apostrophe implies lie is a noun and the lie belongs to one boy.
Omitting the apostrophe implies lie is a verb and that all boys lie.
I would ask the girl what she thinks her shirt implies.

If she is making a statement for a lie told by a particular boy, it could be correct, but it is unlikely she produced the t-shirt.
