I am trying to subtract blue wavelength light from an LED light source, would orange/amber Rosco gels do this?

I would say yes in higher degree than stated here.   An orange filter (specifically CTO) is the standard solution to filter a flash to match orange incandescent and white balance, to prevent its deep blue cast in the picture.

Sure it affects all colors, but so does the orange incandescent.
