They have to be re-authored (therefore re-encoded). There is no other way around it. The two are incompatible formats. There is no ripping and reburning to change from PAL to NTSC.
The simplest way that I have found is to use convertxtodvd to re-author them but you loose the menu (you can create a simple menu if needed using the built-in templates in convertxtodvd). It takes about one hour per dvd.
