No way you can match old shingles with new (for appearance). The same shingles will not match due to weathering or fading. The only way to match is to reshingle the entire roof someday.

The roof must be reshingled to get a visual match. No other way to do it. The old shingles have faded with time and sun exposure. The choice is live with the visual differences or replace the shingles with new ones. Paint will not last more than 3 years.

you cant control the weather. when things are outside, they weather. chances are the new shingles will look just like the old ones in a year or two. its impossible to match a weathered shingle exactly.
