I don't think that Sauron would have had much use for the Elven Rings, except to bring all of the Elves remaining in Middle-earth under his dominion, because they weren't made "for him." The Gwaith-i-Mirdain crafted those rings for the Elves, with Elven purposes. At best, Sauron would have been able to see into the minds of Elves, but he wouldn't have been able to twist the Rings to his own purposes.
