You will not loose any data if you do not uninstall your module and just upgrade it, so you'll need simply change fields definition:

1) CHANGE:  'your_date_field': fields.date(... TO 'your_date_field': fields.datetime(....

2) Restart openerp

3) In your browser go to page: "Settings/Modules/Installed Modules", find  your module, open it and click on "Upgrade" button. As upgrade process ends, you're done. No any data will be lost and field type will be changed as you want.
