I found an old can of red lead putty, but it is hard as a rock. Is there any way I can rehabilitate this either as putty or primer for between the planks?

Yes but the cost isn't worth it. Try crushing the lumps and burning off the old oil without smelting the redlead into metal, keep the temperature down. If you can get that to work it,s just a matter of adding new oil. Again not worth the effort but if you have effort to spare?
