When I worked for Bob Wilson at Fantastic Gardens in Miami (about
fifty years ago I realise with a shock), he had perfected that technique, and
we would laboriously produce gorgeous totems of various aroids by making two or
three passes through the growth cycle. So, yes, it should work for you, and I
think that strong light will also help the process along, simulating the growth
up through the forest canopy.

I know that some philodendrons need to climb higher in
order to get bigger leaves. The problem is, I don't have all the vertical space
for them. So could I just top off the plant and stick the cutting back onto
ground level and expect the leaves to maintain/increase their sizes from there?
