If I am reading your question correctly, you are worried that if you accidentally touch the camera lens and leave a fingerprint, could the camera take a photo of it, and someone could use that photo to open your phone.

I'm going to say no on the camera part... It wouldn't be able to focus tight enough for that.

With that said, it is much more likely that someone, having physical access to your phone, could lift a partial print off of it and somehow make a usable print to fool the sensor into unlocking the phone.

That is possible, if the partial print they get is the same as that portion of the finger(s) you registered with the phone to unlock it; but realistically, it's probably easier for the bad guy to guess the pattern or pin to open the phone up...
