i have had to use touch up paint, it worked pretty well, i waxed the section that i touched up after the paint had dried and it looks good.

Clean it real good before you use it, use primer, overfill the scratch with paint then use super ultra mega fine 2000+ grit wet sand paper to get it back down level. Buff, wax and go.

Does the touch up paint from the dealer have a big difference from the ones you can get at Kragen's?

how deep are they? can you get your finger nail caught in them? if they arent very deep you can buff them out.
