The undead creatures flee until they lose the condition turned The supernatural ability turn undead inflicts the condition turned (PH 314, DMG 301).

As others have mentioned, according to the rules, Egan can't technically be brought back as a lich, since liches make themselves. Since liches are undead, however, they don't age [Tome of Necromancy]. It could be possible that Egan actually (secretly) survived the encounter with the five heroes, but after his brush with death, decided to become a lich as an ...
