No, the Scaling option was removed for 5.3, and there is no other way to increase the font size in just the Formula Bar
You need to scale the entire application as the DE supports and allow the OS to handle your preferences. Believe it of not this was done to improve integration with HiDPI systems like Apple Retina displays.

with scaling, the text becomes too big for input line field.
Using (still) Version: 184.108.40.206, on Mac OS 10.12.3 (sierra),
increasing the scaling from 100% to 150% did increase ALL

size of the input line, however it did not increase the
hight of the input line as it did for the rest of the sheet.
now the text is too big for input line field.

That is the Formula Bar in its collapsed default state, but it can be toggled to Expanded out of single line mode, and then set to a height you prefer that will show the full lines of text.
