Man page for DHCPD 4.1.1-P1 states:

Note: We get a lot of complaints about this.   We realize that it would be
nice if one could send a SIGHUP to the server and have it reload
the database.   This is not technically impossible, but it would require a
great deal of work, our resources are extremely limited, and they can be
better spent elsewhere.   So please don't complain about this on the
mailing list unless you're prepared to fund a project to implement this
feature, or prepared to do it yourself.
