Sadly, no. Carb tabs rated for 375ml bottles when used in 330ml bottles turn the beer within into deadly nerve gas. Simply opening one of these bottles will kill everyone within 6 city blocks.
/sarcasm

The bottles will be slightly overcarbonated, compared to if you had used the tabs in 375ml bottles, just as they would be slightly undercarbonated had you used them in 329ml bottles. It's pretty close to what was intended, you'll be fine.

Yeah, too much pressure. Very dangerous. Why don't you send those bottles to me and I'll er "dispose" of them safely.
