No, you drew a vector that defines how to fill pixels. But you are still using a program designed to edit pixels. What you describe is perfectly normal and expected.

Photoshop is using vector tools to define which pixels to fill. But Photoshop is still working with the pixels in your document, regardless of the tool used. The vector shapes in Photoshop have more precision than the pixel level, but in the end you have to end up with whole pixels.

Otherwise, for true vector support, you want to use Illustrator or Flash.
