Ok, man... here's the solution (sorry if it's too late): https://support.google.com/android/answer/1688405?hl=en
Let me quote it from Google: "To restore hidden contacts from a read-only account, you must delete that account from your phone and then add it again."

Certainly there could be another less invasive way, but it would probably involve root privileges and a deeper understanding of all the Contacts file system, which could even be vendor specific.
Anyway... I had this same problem, found this thread (without the solution) and then I found an answer and fixed it, so I'm reporting to anyone in the same situation.
