Well, others will have another approach (probably better), but to use those as inset doors, you have to remove the outer edge profile and then glue some stock on. Possible, but it does add a complication. In fact, any solution I can think of to make these usable would mean having to square up the outside edge and add material. Then if you still wanted that profile, you have to cut a new one on the additional material. The tricky part about gluing on some more stock to machine would be the joint at the rails (horizontal parts) and stiles (vertical parts). I'm not sure how i would handle that, but if it's maple maybe it can be painted some none of the grain/joint lines show. Wait and see what other thing folks think up.
Edit in: I did have another thought: what about making the face frames smaller so the doors will fit? That would entail putting a piece of wood on the inside of each frame that measures 3/8" or so. If that's acceptable, t would be infinitely easier than modifying the doors, and probably look a lot better.
