According to Martijn (of MapRoulette fame), there is no way a challenge can link to object IDs. MapRoulette can only highlight location. Nor can I provide a proposed fix, which means someone would have to manually find the broken object, navigate to Wikipedia, copy/paste the title, and save the object. I guesstimate 1 minute per object on average... that's nearly 700 hours of community time - a huge waste of human brain power that could be spent on a much more challenging and less automatable tasks.
Osmose might be a good alternative, and might even lower the total number of hours required, but still - would that significantly benefit the project? These tags are just a tiny arbitrary subset of one million wikipedia-tagged objects. Verifying just them by hand seems like a waste of human intelligence. Instead, we can run queries to produce knowingly bad objects and let community fix those. I hope we can let machines do mindless tasks, and let humans do decision making. This would improve contributors morale, instead of making them feel like robots :) Clarifying: the OSM objects already point to those pages via redirect. The redirect information is only stored in Wikipedia.
