I'm not 100% if the 645D supports this, but I think it does. Go to the main menu (record tab I believe) and look for "e-dial programming". The reversal option should be under the last tab of that sub-menu.

I just checked the manual and it looks like the 645D uses the older button customization layout which lacks that option. I believe it was added on the K-5, which came out shortly after the 645D.

Seems like Pentax could address it in firmware.

Or by recommending an upgrade to the 645Z
