You're probably out of luck. Blender uses a built-in Python interpreter,
which means you're stuck with whatever version it uses. If you were to
install a different version of Python, Blender wouldn't use it--it would
still use it's built-in version.
(On Windows, I'm not sure if Blender ships with the Python DLL or if
Python is statically linked in. If Blender does ship with the Python
DLL, you could try to replace the DLL it ships with with the DLL from a
64-bit build of Python, but it would almost certainly crash Blender
because the function signatures would be different. Hell, much lesser
changes can cause problems: it is because of Blender that I compile
Python in UCS-4 mode.)
There is another possibility: perhaps it is a 64-bit version of Python
built into Blender, but you need some standard libraries not supplied by
Blender. (This is something a traceback might have been able to help us
find out.) Does your conversion utility depend on having Python
installed? If so, then installing a 64-bit version could help. But, it
still behooves you to install the exact same version of Python,
preferrably built with the same options.
I can't help you there, though; don't run Windows myself. Did you look
at the Active State distros? Maybe they have one.
And finally, asking on the Blender forums would probably be more helpful.
