 I have previously done this by exporting out the ID, Artifact Type and Creator attributes, then updated the created by attribute to the correct value - recommend you use the users email address versus common name - and this also have sufficient rights on the work items and that the new name is a member of your project area. 


Example 

ID       Type          Created By
123     Task           joe@nowhere.com      ----> update Created by to fred@nowhere.com

Import to the system to overwrite the data.
