As a returning runner after a stress fracture in the tibia, what could pain in the arch of the foot mean?

Plantar fasciitis: It could be plantar fasciitis, or an arch ligament strain. This is a common source of arch pain. Make sure you are returning to physical activities slowly initially, then increase as tolerated. Make sure you are doing your stretches and your shoes are not excessively worn.
