Those pulleys mount to the front of the engine one way or another.  The
motor mounts wouldn't alter their alignment.  So if they're not lined up,
it's because there is something else wrong.  The manual test for serpentine
belt alignment is done with a tool that has teeth on both ends.  I'm not
sure you can rely on an outside rim-to-outside rim of the pulleys to
determine proper alignment.
