Buses are always available in both directions. You're checking the online booking site, which doesn't always show both directions because not all originating stations have online access. There'll be a bus, what time it leaves is another matter.
At 2 pm you may not get a direct bus from Sangla to Shimla. Take the first transport available going anywhere out of the valley. You'll have to change vehicles probably - if you get something going to R/Pio, get off at Karchham and wait for something headed to Rampur. You should be able to make it there on the same day. That you'll get a night bus at Rampur going to Shimla is doubtful but you can check.

You should plan for a flight late on the 2nd day, if not the morning of the 3rd day. That's if you want to use public transport. If you need to get to Chandigarh asap, you'll have to hire a taxi.

Just saw on HRTC site that there's an ordinary bus from Rampur to Chandigarh at 7 pm. If you can make it and are ready to take it, it solves your problem to a great extent. It'll be a hard ride overnight though.

You may have to hire a taxi to get to Rampur on time if you want to take this bus.

There is direct bus connectivity from Sangla to Chandigarh.
I completed Rupin trek on June 2015. We reached Sangla at around 1pm, took the bus that reached Sangla at 5pm which left Chitkul at around 4pm. the same bus traveled all the way to Chandigarh via Rampur and Shimla. While we got down to Shimla at 3am next morning, one of our trek partner continued his journey with the same bus and reached Chandigarh at around 9:30am.

But do confirm the current status beforehand as this info is almost 2 years old.

My blog can be referred for complete details and useful contact nos for Rupin trek: Rupin Pass Trek report - May 2015

Kashmir 2014 | Delhi-Agra 2014 | Rupin Pass 2015 | Rambha-Puri 2015
