I don't think these tags could be read by an audio cd player. But you 
could use sox to change the amplitude before burning the files to an 
audio cd. The command looks like this:

 sox infile.wav outfile.wav vol gainfactor

with gainfactor being a floating point number representing the gain. If 
you want to find out the maximum gain factor for a track you can use this 

 sox infile.wav -e stat -v
