Load back a vm to openstack

my first idea would be to upload the disk file as a new image to  
glance and then launch a new instance.
Another idea would be to remove the deleted flag in the nova database  
and see if it starts again. I haven't tried that myself, though, I  
also don't know how many changes that would require. But manipulating  
the database is not supported so I wouldn't recommend it. If you want  
to try it anyway make sure you have a database backup, or try it in a  
test environment beforehand.
