I had a new dishwasher installed and installer told me he would have to install a 110 electrical outlet since the old dishwasher was hard wired. He said he could only install it if he added the outlet because he would have to bring it up to code. Is this correct?

No, a receptacle is not required. When a permanently installed appliance is rated at less than 300 volt-amps or 1/8 horsepower, the circuit over current protection device can act as the disconnecting means for the appliance. Table E4001.5, 2006 International Residential Code.
