So I found a Nikon fm2 with slightly dented/bent shutter blade for around 50$. The camera has seen professional use and stil operates great. Shutter operates perfectly. I shot a few photos with it and they were beautiful. Lens is a Nikkor 50mm f1.8 which is in perfect condition. Will the shutter blades being dented cause me any problems, in the long run?

If it works without light leaks at all speeds, it will probably keep doing so. The FM and FM2 bodies, just like the Nikkormats that went before them seem to take an immense amount of abuse before they start misbehaving.
