Tighten or loosen?
to tighten, I'd add material to the peg, some paper or something taped on is a simple non-permanent solution. to loosen a peg hole I'd consider reaming the hole out with a drill bit, by hand , carefully but you run the risk of making it extremely loose.

To tighten I use clear nail polish on the peg. Put it in and swivel it for a while until the nail polish dries. Once it wears out just do it again.

Varnish or the floor polish trick should work fine in this case.

If you're really intent on making the alteration as permanent as you can, you could try a bondic pen. The pen deposits a layer of liquid plastic and a UV light in the cap cures it hard. Sand the surface lightly beforehand to give the plastic something to grip.
