New lifters can be added to an old cam. It's done all the time if a lifter goes flat and stops pumping up.. You can't run old lifters on a new cam.. After the lifters are replaced, the cam should be gone thru a basic break in procedure to pattern the lifters to the cam..

New Cam wouldn't be a bad idea. Cost of a cam and lifter kit isn't much more than the lifters itself
