It seems to me that you are not using the correct parameter. Did you 
check the manpage?

With postfix this is just a symlink to /usr/sbin/sendmail, probably the 
same in your case.

Are you sure it's not /usr/sbin/sendmail?

$ apt-file search /usr/bin/sendmail
sendpage-client: /usr/bin/sendmail2snpp

$ apt-file search /usr/sbin/sendmail
citadel-mta: /usr/sbin/sendmail
courier-mta: /usr/sbin/sendmail
dma: /usr/sbin/sendmail
esmtp-run: /usr/sbin/sendmail
exim4-daemon-heavy: /usr/sbin/sendmail
exim4-daemon-light: /usr/sbin/sendmail
lsb-invalid-mta: /usr/sbin/sendmail
masqmail: /usr/sbin/sendmail
msmtp-mta: /usr/sbin/sendmail
nullmailer: /usr/sbin/sendmail
postfix: /usr/sbin/sendmail
qmail-run: /usr/sbin/sendmail
sendmail-base: /usr/sbin/sendmailconfig
ssmtp: /usr/sbin/sendmail
xmail: /usr/sbin/sendmail
