No you need to go buy the correct dizzy, and like I said in your last question just wire everything else in as needed, and make sure you get a good OBD0-OBD1 jumper harness from like raywire. The only reason you can't covert is because the plugs are different, which i'm sure you know as you have both.

EDIT: A more in depth answer.

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it will not work. at all. End of story.

Here is why: The obd1 distributor has a different waveform pattern for the TDC/CYL sensor than obd0. So even IF you did the wiring 100% perfectly correct,meaning all the sensors wired to the correct wires, the obd0 ECU will not understand the obd1 waveform coming from the tdc/cyl sensor, and you will have a CEL.

obd1 and obd2 distributors use the same waveforms, so they are interchangeable, but obd0 will not work with either obd1 or 2 because of this difference.

Unfortunatly, you need an obd0 distributor to make it work with the ecu.
