Unfortunately the only thing you can try is going to a heavier weight oil (10w30 or 20w50) to see if this lessens the noise. There are numerous 'miracle fluid' type products you can add to your oil (Marvel, etc) that consist of a very thick oil additive that has a similar effect, you can try these also, but in moderation.

If the lifters are worn out, nothing is going to make them completely quiet except for replacing them.
Because of the cost involved, most people opt to try thicker oil and see if it is something they can live with; other wise replacement will run you 3 hours of labor per side of the vehicle (about $600 total) and $21 per lifter that is in need of replacement.
