I have seen this question asked in the past, and the usual answer posted back is that the only way to change the partition sizes is to re-install! I doubt that you will find any software that can read/write/resize both Mac OS and NTFS partitions at the same time. If you do find such a thing, let us all know (please!), but if not, you may be stuck. A full re-install of your Windows environment may be required.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
