Substituting curry paste for chili paste

The recipe I'm making (Thai tofu with coconut-red curry sauce) calls for chili paste. I wound up purchasing red curry paste (from Thailand) instead. Can I subsitute? I wasn't sure about the fiery chili paste anyway, since two of the diners don't like really spicy. The curry paste is made of chili, garlic, shallot, lemongrass, sugar and galangal.

Thanks for any advice.
