Depending on the extent of the damage (a picture might help get you a better response), lead is soft enough that you can hammer it back into shape; otherwise, sanding it to get a good surface and fairing with epoxy should get it back to normal.
If you hit a rock as your post suggests, be sure that you didn't cause any structural damage at the leading or aft end of the hull/keel joint. But with lead being fairly soft, that's less likely to happen than with an iron keel.
Good luck with the repair.
