How will it affect the sound if the strings don't go over the center of the corresponding magnets, and are slightly off (say, the E strings would each be off by 1 mm) ?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

It might be a little quieter but probably not that much different if they're all off a little bit

You would get reduced volume and possibly lose some dynamics(in terms of what the pickups pick up). Thats about it.

you can raise the pole (if adjustable) or raise the E side, to compensate.
