I don’t think it’s possible to use actions to do what you’re after. It is probably possible to write a script though. In addition to the answers above, here’s another manual way to do it, but using one click + drag per layer. Place a layer with the layer overlay you’d like to copy to other layers (the new colour).

I have created an action that assigns F1+⌘+⇧ to Copy Shape Attributes and F2+⌘+⇧ to Paste Shape Attributes. I hope this is useful for a few people who would like to quickly copy all of the shape attributes.
