Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I am building a campus map, and would like to be able to build polygons and paths as layers with leaflet. Is it possible to hide existing sidewalks/buildings in OSM data and replace them with my own?

Tiles are fixed images. If you do not like what is on them, you have to use another tile server or create your own tiles.

One day in the future, the OSM servers might serve vector tiles that you can render as you wish (was discussed on SOTM the last weekend).

This answer is correct, but there are some ways to work around this. For example, you could try placing another layer on top of the OSM maps. If that layer is opaque on the area of interest, and transparent elsewhere, it will hide the undesired features. It's a crude solution, but perhaps "good enough" for some. :)
