The heads WILL fit, but they require a bit of custom work to get a proper fit without the major lip on the block. I would recommend picking up a set of 5.7L heads from Inertia motorsports rather than try to make 6.1L heads fit, they're around the same price, and you can get a lot more out of the IM heads over the 6.1L. You'd also need to swap in the 6.1L intake as the 5.7L won't install over the 6.1L heads, and you'd be looking at quite a price increase just to do that. If you've got the money to do the 6.1L heads/cam, then I'd seriously look at the IM heads and cam instead.

The 6.1L cam is a very mild grind for the 5.7L, but doesn't require a new tune, the computer can learn the curve on it's own; but you'd need a custom tune with the 6.1L heads. IM does offer the spartan cam and heads avaliable with a canned tune.
