"Apply Changes" link in the Admin UI should do it.

Restarting the database won't help

Restarting IC will also pull in the changes, but Apply Changes should
work if you can't restart IC.

Also since you deleted pricing.sql it will actually drop the tables you
just changed and re-create them with the new fields and existing data.
This is usually not the behavior you want and if you don't want the
tables to be dropped and re-created then you should replace the .sql
files.  Also if you *never* want IC to drop and re-create your tables
then it is a good idea to add the following line to your catalog.cfg file:

NoImportExternal  Yes
