 You should be able to do that on most (maybe all) of the holes - for sure 
the perimeter ones.  If the oil pan is off, try the 1" bolts in all the 
holes to see if any holes are too short.  You are only going to gain about 3 
threads of "holding power", so don't over torque your fresh bolts because 
the next step will be a thread insert.

Later, JR

Quick question - can I use 1" long bolts for the stock oilpan with cork 
gasket - or should I go with ¾"?
