I boiled a set of aoudad horns off and they are a lot darker than they were. what can be done to get them back to the original color?

Nothing, you boiled them too long and too hard

The oils from the cores and the skull melted down and absorbed into the horn sheaths. You might try boiling them in soapy water to get some of it out, but it's questionable. Boiling horns is very tricky and you must watch them, checking them constantly. Never walk off and leave a set of horns in boiling water.
