I am afraid you can not.

Does you N-body code produce any information about spacetime metric?
You need to initialize the metric for the fully relativistic

I would suggest that your code dump the final binary orbital parameters
to a file and then you use them into the thorn TwoPunctures to generate
the initial data you need to continue the evolution.
