I don’t have a Time Capsule myself but I would imagine what you described is the only way to do it … to get the data mirrored again on your original drive and then have it copied over during a standard backup. Otherwise, any meta data the Time Capsule software uses to track changes wouldn’t necessarily be correct simply by copying files over. That’s just my edumacated guess.
