"Disable module output" is a configuration, stored in the database, so you cannot change it from files, but with access to the database (MySQL console, phpMyAdmin, ...) you can undo it for all modules with the following query:

DELETE FROM core_config_data WHERE path LIKE 'advanced/modules_disable_output/%'

or for only core modules:

DELETE FROM core_config_data WHERE path LIKE 'advanced/modules_disable_output/Mage_%'

or for a specific module (in this example Mage_Customer):

DELETE FROM core_config_data WHERE path = 'advanced/modules_disable_output/Mage_Customer'
