Judges in the CFC court have term limits of 15 years.

Yes.

Sweeney will have been a Judge and a Chief Judge for 15 years in the CFC sometime this year as her original appointment was in 2005.

Yes. Judge Sweeney's 15-year appointment as a CFC Judge occurred when Sweeney was confirmed by the Senate on December 14, 2005 and she entered directly into her duties. President Trump designated her as Chief Judge on July 12, 2018. Chief Judge Sweeney's term expires around December 14, 2020. Chief Judge Sweeney is currently 64-65 years old.

Chief Judge Sweeney replaced Chief Judge Susan G. Braden who was appointed to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims by President George W. Bush on July 14, 2003 and appointed chief judge by President Trump on March 13, 2017. Braden's Term ended on July 12, 2018, 15 years after her 2003 appointment. She became a Senior Judge of the US Court of Federal Claims on July 13, 2018. Braden will be 70 years old on November 8, 2020

Does she need to be reappointed when her term is over by the President and consent by senate?

No, Judge Sweeney does not need to be reappointed. Chief Judge Sweeney can be replaced as she replaced Chief Judge Braden. So, a replacement can be designated or a reappointment can be made by the winner of the 2020 presidential election in accordance with the provisions of 28 USC Chapter 7. 28 U.S. Code CHAPTER 7—UNITED STATES COURT OF FEDERAL CLAIMS https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/28/part-I/chapter-7

Or can she just become a Senior Judge

Yes, as did Chief Judge Braden. Or retire (28 USC 178)

and/or remain a Chief Judge after her term expires

Only if Chief Judge Sweeney is reappointed and only until she reaches 70 years in age (28 USC Section 171(b) and Section 178(b)).

but she cannot be a regular Judge?

Not sure what is meant by a regular judge.
