Can you be misdiagnosed for herpes if you have syphilis?

No, they are different types of infections with really different symptoms. Herpes is caused by a virus, which as yet cannot be cured, and syphilis is bacterial and gets treated easily with a course of specific antibiotics leading to a 100% cure. I'd rather have syphilis over herpes any time.
