To be exact, if modifies the sentence, so {tlhoS [nuv jub moj]}, = it 
almost happened that he became an immortal person.

If you wanted "he became almost immortal", I'd try to do just as in 
English and add the mofiying thing to the word "immortal"...

Well, it remains the question what that would be after all. What is 
"almost immortal"?
