I believe his question was how can he straighten out the doors.

I doubt keeping them in a moist environment will do it.
You need a differential to bring it back (and it probably won’t work).
For example, put a light or fan on the convex surface and/or moisten the concave surface.

Here’s another suggestion that should work:

Cut a groove lengthwise mid-edge about 2 1/4” deep.
(Ideally you want the groove on the inside but that’s not an option for you.)
Make a 2 1/4+” wide spline and plane to fit snugly in the groove.
Glue in the spine, clamp the doors down to something flat, and let dry overnight.
Use TBIII or an other really hard drying glue.
Yes, you will see the spline, but you could choose a darker wood and turn a problem into a design feature ;-)
Good Luck.
