You won't break the bolts but you could distort the valve cover and/or the gasket which would result in a messy leak. You don't need a torque wrench for something like this, just use common sense. Hold the ratcheting end in your fingers instead of you hand on the handle (you want to minimize leverage to prevent over-torquing). Then tighten until the bolt is just "snug". Use wrist/finger strength instead of arm strength in this case.
