This was my thinking, too.

Nothing in the deleted scene led me to believe that Pym worked for SHIELD; only that they had given him a hard time.

I just rewatched the scene. I could see this interpretation, but honestly I think that it's ambiguous enough that either reading could be true.

Regardless, I would like to see the Selvig connection again.
