i have some newly planted lilies bulbs that were starting to sprout through the ground then my husband thought the bed needed more soil and buried them, will they continue to grow through the added soil or will they die?

Lilies are strange plants. They find their perfect depth by some how migrating up and down in the soil until their are happy. Weird!

Many Liliums have contractile roots that enable them to pull themselves down into the soil to the right depth.

The few that don't use stolons to grow new bulbs at the right level, slowly moving the cluster up or down.
