It would be unusual to randomly audit phone records of people ordered deported without it first being brought to ICE's attention that he is still in the country.

First, and most important, if your cousin is refusing to obey a deportation .... although he doesn't have a criminal record now ... he might be getting one.
The ICE police can do whatever they wish and they do have access to quite a large amount of resources.
My advice is that he talk to an immigration attorney immediately. "Hiding" from ICE isn't a smart thing to be doing.

I agree. I would also add that ICE has prioritized cases and definitely enforce removal orders. Your cousin should immediately contact an attorney to see if he has any remedies. If he has already violated the order, he will have many remedies barred to him so eventually, if he wants to fix his status, he will have to leave the US. Contact an attorney immediately.
