No. If you deepen the nut to accept a large gauge string properly, you wont be able to put a "normal" E string on again without some buzzing and tuning issues.

If youre concerned for resale value, Id say leave it as is, and get a baritone meant for this type of tuning.

Presuming it is just a standard nut, replacement nuts can be had for around $10. Should you screw up your nut, it is not difficult or expensive to swap in a new one. You can find how to videos online.

If you just want to fit larger strings you shouldn't have to deepen the slot at all. You will have to make the slot wider but there is no reason to cut it deeper. If the nut is already cut to the proper depth then even with a wider string the slot will still be the proper depth simply increase the width of the slot so the string will sit in it properly and your done
