I do have tasker installed.. How can I configure it so it overrides the sensor? In that case, I need to also override the sensor when using Microsoft lync 2013, which also turns the screen off when I place a call.

Isn't there an app to fake sensor input to apps? It's meant for developing apps, but it could work if your case. I'll look for it
EDIT: Try using XPrivacy
(Requires Xposed Framework) and sending empty sensor lists to the phone app.
