These ten sub-lists together make the full overall list.

The usage of the definite article or preposition "for" followed by the definite article is the correct usage (in this case).
As you said yourself, make up would be ambiguous in this case. The last example sentence of yours is quite weird sounding.
These ten sub-lists together make the full overall list up.
We do not use the adverb at the end of a sentence to mean something like making something up/creating something.
On a short note, I would also like to point out the usage of full and overall in the same sentence, back-to-back.
- full - complete, whole, or containing a lot of detail.
- overall - in general rather than in particular, or including all the people or things in a particular group or situation.
Both the adjectives defines something whole. So I would rather say you use only one of the two words: full/overall. You can also consider the following alternative:
These ten sub-lists together make for the whole list.
Edit: According to original poster's comment, "make for the whole" is a rare instance (I did not get just four results though). It might be so, but it sounds the best in this case. Google Ngram showing the stable pace of "make for the whole" as against the rapid decrease in "make up the whole".
