I've had bad luck with condor_rm and DAG jobs, so I'd rather avoid doing
that, changing it, and resubmitting.  Is there any way to tweak this
value in a currently running DAG job?

Is the DAGMAN_MAX_JOBS_SUBMITTED value in a per-DAG config file? If so, I think you could do condor_hold on DAGMan, edit the config file, and then condor_release on DAGMan. I haven't tried this, so I'm not totally sure it will work, but I think it should.

Condor_hold on the DAGMan job won't stop any currently-running node jobs, so at least you should't lose work that's already in progress.
