using a load balancer. AWS has a load balancing service, but it is limited in protocol support (http/https).
You can install load balancing software for other protocols on an EC2 instance.

My problem is my software on the instances uses a set of HTTP proxy servers to connect to the internet. I can only have ten IP addresses on the access list. Can a load balancer be used for outbound traffic like this?

You should have described your problem in more detail when asking :)
A load balancer is no good in your case.
You can easily set up a proxy (one or more) controlled by you in EC2. Either Apache http with mod_proxy, or squid, or any other you like, can be used to consolidate your outgoing traffic thru this single IP address.
