cam,

 

I am afraid the long answer is no.

 

Have you no backup from before the outlining?

 

It is always recommended to save the original artwork before doing something destructive; and to save often and in different places.

 

Maybe the best way is to rewrite the text and place it on top of the outlined part; to align you can tick Use Preview Bounds in the Preferences, then use the Effect Path>Outline Object, this will make the live Type act (almost) like the outlined text, and then you can use the Align panel; remember to select both and then click the outlined text again to make it the key object that stays in place.
