Does overtime pay have to be included when determining paid leave?

Yes. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires you to pay an employee for hours the employee would have been normally scheduled to work even if that is more than 40 hours in a week. For example, an employee who is scheduled to work 50 hours a week may take 50 hours of paid sick leave in the first week and 30 hours of paid sick leave in the second week for the total of 80 hours of paid leave.
