You might check and make sure it's the sleeve cap that's too big and not the sweater body that's too short. If that's not the case and the sleeve cap is just slightly too big, you could try gathering the top of the cap a bit and easing it into the opening as Jan suggested. If the sleeves are knit from the cuff to the shoulder, could you take the upper part of the sleeve out and re-knit it to a smaller size? Steeking is certainly a possibility. It would require stitching over the area inside the proposed cut line a few times with the sewing machine set on very short stitch lengths.
