You can re-identify wire IN CABLE ASSEMBLY only, not single wires pulled thru conduit!
White wire re-identified (as black, red etc.) can supply line voltage to the switch, never use it as switch to light connection.

Of course. That would make sense. In conduit you should have fished the correctly coloured wires in the first place.
