If I work at the company my father founded my entire career, but I take a 10 month hiatus to pursue my own path, am I self-made?

Self made what? That's an adjective usually followed by 'millionaire', 'success' or something similar.
In general, the answer would be, "of course not". You got your start from your family and took 10 months off from that job knowing that you could go back to it at any time (given you said 'hiatus'). Putting the aside, who paid for your education? Your rent from 18 - 25? Every other expense including insurance, cell phone, utilities, etc?
