Dictionary.com lists 17 different senses of the adjective /true:/ 
https://www.dictionary.com/browse/true?r=75&src=ref&ch=dic

I don't see that we have much evidence to say which ones of those *teH* 
means. I'm sure it only means some of them, but picking which is tricky. 
I would not be so quick to assume that *teH *means only conforming to 
reality and not genuineness.
