I don't see how it could hurt to create a HMTL sitemap with links to this pages and use WMT-->Health-->Fetch as Googlebot-->Submit to index-->URL and all linked pages
This could speed up the crawling.
"Select if your page is new or has been recently updated. Google doesn't guarantee to index all submitted URLs."
I have no experience with the URL removal tool.
