Two of my favourite eBay-based LED sellers are here and here.  It should be a one-for-one swap with the white LEDs - desolder the white, resolder the purple (actually, UV is probably end up getting).  Sadly it doesn't look like you can get a UV LED strip (at least from these two sellers), or I'd just suggest doing that.  You can get just about any other colour, though.
I doubt a UV led will give more purple light than a filtered white one, but I may be wrong.

 Maybe RBG leds.

You could cover each LED with a coloured gel, generally used in theatre but come in quite big sheets for a few pounds, personally I use a company called Lee Filters but there are other options such as Rosco there a wide range of colours to choose from.

You might TRY theatrical "lighting gels".
