Assuming you’re using dbus-sensors (which I’m pretty sure you are):

Support for overriding sensor values was recently landed in this commit:

Overriding a sensor value with a "fake" sensor reading should be as easy as simply calling SetProperty on the dbus interface.

Example as tested on my system (your path names may vary)
dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=xyz.openbmc_project.CPUSensor /xyz/openbmc_project/sensors/temperature/Core_1_CPU0 org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Set string:xyz.openbmc_project.Sensor.Value string:Value variant:double:1.0

and verify by reading it back out:

dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=xyz.openbmc_project.CPUSensor /xyz/openbmc_project/sensors/temperature/Core_1_CPU0 org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.GetAll string:xyz.openbmc_project.Sensor.Value
