So there are 2 solutions here; the easiest one which usually takes care of the problem which everyone has pretty much already mentioned is run the car. Usually the lifters manage to re-prime eventually this way.

Alternatively, you can pull the cam tower and with a vacuum pump, glass mason jar filled with motor oil and appropriate fittings on the tin lid you can manually prime the lifters one by one. Once the air bubbles stop appearing in the oil you know that lifter is ready and its time to move to the next.

Around the 4:30 mark in this video you can see a demo by Van who uses the above method.
