Do you know of a similar project that does the opposite, i.e. make Heretic levels playable in Doom?

Not that I'm aware, at least not to this degree of detail.

There are old DOS era conversion programs like DM2Conv that will convert Heretic to DOOM, but the results tend to be rather terrible as they stick to vanilla assets, which don't tend to translate between the two games very well.

It is really puzzling as to why nobody has tried doing so, given all the amazing mapsets and mods that have been produced over the last decades. You would think blasting your way through Doom monsters would be fun in Heretic levels...

I guess people generally just do not care enough about Heretic in general! :S
