In brief: Great idea

But i wouldn't want to try it outside of a clinical trial.

In brief: Don't do it

Tamoxifen is an anti estrogen prescribed for hormonal dependent breast cancer in females also for prevention of breast cancer. I am not aware of the use of tamoxifen in males.
Most gynecomastias are caused by medications. Simply lowering the dosis or stopping them there will be improvement. Tamoxifen is indicated for mastalgia ( not gynecomastia) in females but not in males.

In brief: Probably not

It is an anti-estrogen drug which may keep the condition from getting worse, but it probably won't reverse it.
