I suggested a patch to implement "pass reencrypt" in January:

Subject: [PATCH] add "pass reencrypt" sub command
Date: Tue, 7 Jan 2020 17:33:56 +0100

it is just slightly different from pass init - ie. it will use existing 
.gpg-id files.  so in your case, you would have to update .gpg-id 
manually before running the command.  whether this is better/more 
convenient than just running "pass init" I will leave for you to decide. 
  in our usecase, we have dozens of keys (belonging to members of our 
team) which give varying access to subfolders, so using "pass init" is 
very awkward when we get a new hire :-)
