I don't think so.
Mon frère n'est plus dans l'école; je l'ai vu sortir.
No suggestion that he did it more than once, I would say.
J'ai vu mon frère sortir de l'école, I agree with Pachapapa, could mean more than once as in "I've seen him come out of there" (several times) and not "I saw him come out of there".
I also agree that "j'ai vu mon frère sortant de l'école" is as in "en train de sortir" (in the process of doing so, or however you could explain that). Could also be several times, not just once.
Mais où on va la ?!
