|Hmm, that is pretty strange! I would work in baby steps, I guess.
Whenever you let her off leash to potty, follow her around (as if she was attached to a leash). When she potties, give her a treat and praise for pottying with you there. Move up to attaching a lead to her collar but letting it dangle, and see if she potties with it just attached. If she does, treat and praise praise praise!! (: Do it each time she goes out to potty, get her used to the fact of having a human next to her while she potties. When she can go with the leash attached, follow her around again and move up to holding onto the leash while she's out.
That's what I would do, anyway. Good luck!!
(Perhaps, if she is uncomfortable with a person being there while she potties, you could try a flexi lead? That would give her the freedom to move about but without the risk of being off leash. )
