I really wouldn't, you may well melt the globe holder or dash cluster itself if the globe gets too hot. We had this problem on some plant equipment at work, a bank of indicator lamps are supposed to take 2W globes and we were putting 4s in.

 

My suggestion if you can't find the right one is to put 24V globes of the same wattage you were going to put in, they may be a tad dull but won't get hot like something in 12V that's too high wattage.

 

Another option is LED wedges, which don't get hot, but you'll lose your dimming function.
