Nope. Just like Premiere, AE will interpret your offline files as the proper sources and require you to reconnect each of them manually. Even using proxies would have no benefits here as it does not update the timelien structure. I'm wondering, though, since you both use Premiere, can't you just export an EDL or AAF and then re-import? I rarely use Premiere, but seems exactly what you would want to do. Would be simple on Avid systems...
Anyway to batch reconnect files ?
My experience with AAF so far is that they suck real bad (soundwise), so I wouldn't want to extend the problem to video too...
The project switch from 2 different file format and this is what seem to make Premiere reticent of linking media back.
That's like the prime stuff of offline/online editing. Makes me wish I had AVID or FCP !!
Not really. Perhaps there is some JSX script floating around somewhere that can do it, but if so, I'm not aware of it. Maybe ask around at AEnhancers or check sites like nabscripts.com (he's from Canada and also speaks French)...
If the two versions of the files have the same names, you could just close PPro/AE and rename the folders so that when the project is launched it would see the new files placed in the old location. You would then need to re-interpret the files.

I had to offline them when importing the CFHD project into a new made DV project; managed to do it with audio files, but video files were too heavy and made import crash.
That would have been a good option.
