The shop I used to work in had riv-nuts and the tool, We had to tighten up riv-nuts all the time. That is a weird spot for the holes and I am sure someone put them there, however, there is no reason you can't throw a couple riv nuts in there and put a bottle cage on if you would like.

Personally I would not subject the tube to any heat just to fill those holes, i would find some rubber plus the right size, stick them in and paint them. It's a rider not a show bike and the heat in that area of that thing tube is not a good thing. You could also use some bondo or other body filler to fill them and then sand it down yourself.
