Having nine lives does not appear to give one a greatly extended lifespan. If one dies of old age, the new life taking over will make improvements specific to the actual cause of death, but there will not be general rejuvenation: one will still be old, and will die of old age again before very long. In any case, nine-lived enchanters tend to live in interesting times and use up most of their lives in other ways before getting a chance to die of old age.
