My guess is that it would be a crabapple or ornamental cherry tree. VANGUARD is a red-leaved crab with cascades of pink blossoms. REDORN#1 Produces masses of persistent bright pink blossoms and spring foliage that is bright red, turning to reddish-bronze in the summer.
Ornamental cherry cultivar with pinkish foliage is CANADA RED, a small, rounded-pyramidal Prunus virginiana selection, growing to 15 ft. New foliage is green, turning red, then purple as leaves mature.

Hope one of these trees ends your search for a tree with pink leaves!
